Intellectual Property Rights for Startups [presentation]
Where Technology, Business, and Law Intersect
By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.
The above statement comes from WIPO, the global forum for intellectual property services, policy, information, and cooperation; a self-funding agency of the United Nations, with 188 member states. Their mission is to lead the development of a balanced and effective international intellectual property (IP) system that enables innovation and creativity for the benefit of all.
