About World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
The WIPO is an international organization dedicated to helping to ensure that the rights of creators and owners of intellectual property are protected worldwide and that inventors and authors are, thus, recognized and rewarded for their ingenuity. The international protection acts as a spur to human creativity, pushing forward the boundaries of science and technology and enriching the world of literature and the arts. By providing a stable environment for the marketing of intellectual property products, it also oils the wheels of international trade. The number of member States belonging to WIPO now stands at 179, over 90 percent of the world’s countries – a reflection of the crucial importance and relevance attached to the work of the Organization.
World Intellectual Property Organization carries out many tasks related to the protection of Intellectual Property Rights, such as administering international treaties, assisting governments, organizations and the private sector, monitoring developments in the field and harmonizing and simplifying relevant rules and practices. In all that it does, the key words are relevance, efficiency, communication and international cooperation.
