New Zealand's patent, copyright and trademark professionals will celebrate the world of intellectual property with a free public event on 4 May in Wellington.
The theme for World IP Day 2016 (which was officially on Tuesday, 26 April) is "Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined".
New Zealand Institute of Patent Attorneys (NZIPA) and the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ) are hosting a discussion session with creators and experts on creativity in the digital market at the New Zealand Film and Television School in Wellington.
Speakers include Jonathan King, film director, writer and producer (Black Sheep and Under the Mountain) and Victoria Spackman, CEO of the Gibson Group – a nationally renowned television and visitor attraction production company.
"The challenge of a flexible, adaptive intellectual property system is to help ensure that the artists and creative industries in our digital universe can be properly paid for their work, so they can keep creating," an NZIPA spokesperson says.
Date: Wednesday 4 May 2016 Time: 5.30pm – 7.30pm (discussion starts at 5.45pm).
