Today is World Intellectual Property Day - who is celebrating. The number of people involved in IP is extremely wide, and many do not even realize that. Is this another day in a series of professional holidays? Yes and no. For example, have you ever written poetry? Drew a picture (like the one on this post)? Composed melodies? Maybe you came up with a way to make things work in a way they couldn't before? Or did you start your own small company, and over time, customers began to recognize your products by the logo or by the design of the product itself? Then go on and celebrate World IP Day - this is your holiday as well! And everything you do is your intellectual property. This year, the focus is on small and medium enterprises the central role they play in our economies and societies, and how intellectual property can help them achieve better results.
