Join LES-SVC at its 17th Annual Conference in celebrating
World IP Day on April 26, 2017: Innovation – Improving Lives
In 2000, the World Intellectual Property Organization member states designated April 26 - the day 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.
