In an aim to celebrate and honor world intellectual property day commonly referred to as WIPO, Professor Kamil Idris sent a powerful message to the world. According to the renowned professor, the day which is marked by annual celebrations on 26th April has grown tremendously with governments and various prominent bodies joining in each year.
Unfortunately, even with this success in making WIPO an internationally recognized day, there are people who still wonder why anyone would go to such lengths to celebrate intellectual property. For this group of people, professor Kamil Idris had something to say them too. According to Mr. Kamil, intellectual property is something that should be highly respected, protected and celebrated because without it, the major inventions and innovations which we see today wouldn’t be here. It is through it that matters like global warming is being handled.
Again it is through it that the power of human creativity is put into action. The professor went on to add that it is thanks to intellectual property the world can now enjoy an easier, comfortable life such as stress-free movement by air, effortless communication through the internet and a long string of other innovations which shape our world today. Were it not for intellectual property then probably we would still be living in the Stone Age.
That is why according to Prof. Kamil WIPO was put in place to not only honor these innovations but also pay tribute to anyone who has ever contributed to making the world a better place because it is through their rich intellect property that life is now a walk in the park in comparison to a few years ago.
