World Intellectual Property Day

Today is World Intellectual Property Day. The World Intellectual Property Organization even has an online gallery.

For a Canadian angle, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office has put together some material on the importance of intellectual property.

Thomson Scientific is marking the day with issues of its publication World IP Today on patent output from the G8 countries in the last decade and global technology innovations over the same period.

For a more critical account of what World Intellectual Property Day represents, one can also read the thoughts of University of Ottawa professor Michael Geist who concludes:

"(...) World Intellectual Property Day has become little more than a lobbyist day with creators, users, and the facts once again getting lost in the process".
