World IP Day was launched in the year 2000 by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to promote and protect creative ideas, including music, art, trademarks, writings and inventions. Today, we are pleased to announce that AIPLA, working with local IP law associations, Chambers of Commerce, cities, and law schools, to celebrate World IP nationally, and internationally, in a grand fashion.
For 2014, the theme for the event is “Movies: A Global Passion”. This year, the theme looks “behind the scenes” to find out how IP rights shape the filmmaker’s journey from script to screen, how film producers attract investors, how screenwriters and actors earn a living, and how innovation is pushing the frontiers of creativity in the industry. We are working with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), WIPO and the US Patent and Trademark Office on this event.
Since World IP Day falls on a Saturday, we will be hosting these events throughout the week immediately before and after World IP Day.
