Join in the Celebration with World IP Day


Join in the Celebration with World IP Day

April 26, 2016

With the core belief that ideas are valuable and with a commitment to ensuring a thriving market for innovation, Intellectual Ventures (IV) is proud to take part in celebrating World Intellectual Property Day. Started by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2000, World IP Day gives us the opportunity to “learn about the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity.” This year’s theme centers on the future of media, art, and culture in the digital age. 

To get into the spirit leading up to today, IV’s Phyllis Turner-Brim, Vice President and Chief IP Counsel, hosted the 2016 AIPLA Women in IP Global Networking event for the greater Seattle area last week on April 21. Looking towards the future, Turner-Brim will be one of the impressive speakers scheduled to present during IPBC Global, the annual event for global IP leaders, taking place this June in Barcelona.

Businesses, associations like AIPLA, and organizations around the world are getting involved, and you can to. Read more about ways to engage during World IP Day.
