Just posting a quick note to say “bye-bye!” A lot has happened in the world of IP, in Africa and beyond, since I posted our first blogpost back in December 2007. And now I’m retiring and just wanted to say a big “thank you” to Afro Leo and all the blog team for their wonderful efforts over the past years. A big “thank you” is due to our readers too, for their support, their comments and their patience!
It’s a difficult world right now, and I have no instant suggestions for putting it right. But what I can say is that IP can help, if it’s properly protected, developed and where necessary shared around. Let’s hope that Afro-IP will help this process.
