In 2000, member states from the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) designated 26 April of every year as World Intellectual Property Day, with the aim of “increasing [the] general understanding of intellectual property”. The subject for this year’s World Intellectual Property Day is “Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined”, with the WIPO particularly focusing on “exploring some of the issues surrounding our cultural future”, for example, how we create, access and finance it.
