World Intellectual Property Day 2012 – " Visionary Innovators "

World Intellectual Property Day is observed annually on 26 April. The event was established by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2000 to "raise awareness of how patents, copyright, trademarks and designs impact on daily life" and "to celebrate creativity, and the contribution made by creators and innovators to the development of societies across the globe". 26 April was chosen as this was the date on which the Convention Establishing the World Intellectual Property Organization entered into force in 1970.
Each year, a message or theme is associated with the event:
  • 2001 – Creating the Future Today
