World Intellectual Property Day

In 2000, WIPO's member states designated April 26 – the day on which the WIPO Convention came into force in 1970 – as World IP Day with the aim of increasing general understanding of IP. 

Since then, World IP Day has offered a unique opportunity each year to join with others around the globe to consider how IP contributes to the flourishing of music and the arts and to driving the technological innovation that helps shape our world.

In 2014 we celebrate: Movies – A Global Passion


One hundred years ago on a dusty California lot, Charlie Chaplin created the Tramp, arguably inventing the modern film in the process.


As an actor Chaplin brought pathos, nuance, and depth of character to the screen. As a director he embraced new technologies and explored new avenues for the medium. As a producer he developed innovative means of financing and distribution, helping to create the modern film industry and establishing film as one of the most popular art forms around the world.


A century later, movies are a global passion – for the millions who watch them every day and for the hundreds of thousands who work in the global film industry. The writers and actors, directors and producers, the editors, composers and designers, the sound and light technicians, the creators of special effects and new technologies: each one contributing their spark of creativity and innovative genius to this most collaborative of works.


With more films coming from more countries every day – and more means of dissemination, on screens large and small – we all benefit. The movies have come a long way since Chaplin’s Tramp. But their effect on us – the pleasure, and the passion – remains the same.
