As the world prepares to mark World Intellectual Property (IP) Day this Sunday April 26th 2015, this blogger has come across several World IP Day posters from around the continent created to reflect this year’s theme: “Get Up. Stand Up. For Music”. According to the map of World Intellectual Property Day 2015 Events by World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), there are only sixteen (16) confirmed World IP events being held in ten (10) countries across the continent. This blogger reckons that this represents a low turn-out by IP stakeholders across Africa’s fifty four (54) states given this year’s World IP Day theme and the importance of World IP Day activities and events for awareness creation and public sensitisation.
Neverthless, here are some of the World IP Day posters from the following African countries (in descending order): Tunisia, Morocco, Nigeria, Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, Namibia, South Africa (Cape Town), South Africa (Johannesburg), Kenya (Mombasa) and Kenya (Nairobi):
