The tradition started in 1970 on April 26th by the W.I.P.O. (World Intellectual Property Organization) to celebrate innovation and creativity. They thought a day should be established to focus on visionary innovators whose ideas have shaped our history.

World Intellectual Property Day is a great opportunity to generate public and media interest in issues relating to intellectual property. Today is a day to discuss and contribute innovations that helped shape our world.

Innovation is the creation of better or more effective products, processes, services, technologies or ideas that are accepted by markets, governments and society.  Innovation differs from invention in that innovation refers to the use of a new idea or method, whereas invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method itself.
