April 26 each year marks World Intellectual Property Day. The objective of the day is to create awareness on the role of intellectual property rights (copyright, trademarks, patents, industrial designs, etc.) in encouraging creativity and innovation.


This year, the day is marked on the theme, “Reach for Gold – IP and Sports” and will take a closer look inside the world of sports, and explore how innovation, creativity and intellectual property rights support the development of sports and its enjoyment around the world.
