Intellectual property (IP) according to WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation), refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols, names and images used in commerce.
Intellectual Property Day is celebrated every 26th of April; this year’s tyeme is Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined.
IP is protected by law, like patents, trademarks and copyright, this enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and injovation can flourish.
I advocate for protecting people’s ideas and inventions, and also giving credit to whom it is due when their ideas and creativity are being used.
Let’s join hands and celebrate independent creators.
