World Intellectual Property (IP) Day — 2020

Dear IP PI Blog Readers:

I just want to take a moment to acknowledge this special day, April 26, 2020 (the 20th World IP Day) in which we reinforce the value we place on the creation of Intellectual Property, in all its forms–its creators–and those that have devoted their professional lives to protecting it and the public.

Please take a moment to watch this timely You Tube video of Dr. David Nabarro–Special Envoy to the World Health Organization (WHO) on COVID-19.

He is spot on in commending the work of U.S. and global law enforcement and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and their Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy initiative (BASCAP.)

Thank you all for all that you have done and continue to do.

Stay safe.


Ron Alvarez
