GATINEAU, Quebec – The Canada Business Network has invited the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) to be a guest on a Twitter chat called Boost your trademarks IQ on April 23, 2015, from noon to 1 p.m. (EDT).
Join the live discussion by using and following the hashtag #SMEPME. According to CIPO, the discussion will be on the basics of trademarks, how they can be used by small businesses, as well as general information on the application process.
 
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and its member states decided in 2000 to designate an annual World Intellectual Property Day (World IP Day). They chose April 26, the date on which the convention establishing WIPO originally entered into force in 1970.

The aims of World IP Day are:

to raise awareness of how patents, copyright, trademarks and designs impact on daily life;
to increase understanding of how protecting IP rights helps promote creativity and innovation;
to celebrate creativity, and the contribution made by creators and innovators to the development of societies across the globe; and
to encourage respect for the IP rights of others.
Now in its 15th year, World IP Day celebrates the many innovative achievements and contributions made around the globe. This year's theme is "Get Up, Stand Up. For Music."
