On 26 April every year, Intellectual Property is celebrated on a global scale, to commemorate the establishment of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). Intellectual property is a legal instrument which enables creators, innovators and entrepreneurs to effectively commercialise and protect their work. Without intellectual property, there would not be any box-office films, nor life-saving pharmaceuticals; the market would be filled with flimsy mock-ups of designer shoes, and it would be impossible to know which product on the cheese aisle is the original Manchego.
At Chrysostomides Advocates & Legal Consultants, we are proud ambassadors of Intellectual Property law. Our IP team has helped – and continues to support – artists, inventors, and businesses on how to best utilise the law to flourish. On this World Intellectual Property Day, we have decided to celebrate the occasion, by presenting some of the products of Cypriot artistry and ingenuity which benefit from the protections of Intellectual Property – click here for the article. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we did!
