AUWIPOARIPO

Google's helpers think that AUWIPOARIPO should be "audi paripo". Scrabble's word finders are also way off the mark. To understand this lexical combination the only site of interest is the home page of the African Regional Intellectual Property Organisation:

"On May 3, 2010, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) and Africa University (AU) will launch the 3rd edition of the Masters Degree in intellectual property (MIP) program at Africa University, Mutare, Zimbabwe."

"The MIP Program is designed for young professionals who wish to acquire the skills required to play a leading role in that area through exposure to an international and comparative approach to national and regional IP systems. The young professionals to be accepted to the program should primarily be from academic or R&D institutions, who upon graduation are expected to return to their respective institutions in Africa and serve as trainers in the field of IP."

Afro Leo would welcome comment from those who have attended previous courses.
