Uganda World IP Day Celebration

Capture 60 The Uganda Registration Services Bureau is hosting a day-long celebration for World Intellectual Property Day on Friday, April 26th.  The celebration has a theme and a subtheme: Creativity - the next generation, Tapping wealth from within.  It will feature several speakers, including the Chairman of the Board of Directors.  Exhibition stalls will be open all afternoon for perusing while enjoying the accompanying entertainment.  Afro-Leo is very curious what these stalls will feature and wonders if they’ll have as many freebies as INTA stalls.

This celebration is actually the final event in a week-long series of programs recognizing World Intellectual Property Day.  The Bureau also held a media conference, co-sponsored a technology transfer workshop and IP policy forum with WIPO and participated in a radio talk show. 

The Uganda Registration Services Bureau Intellectual Property Department is also the country’s National Intellectual Property office.  It’s role is the promotion of creativity and IP awareness and to review IP registrations.
