Sustaining and Empowering the Creative Community Through Copyright

April 23 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm EDT

Each year on April 26, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) organizes a global World IP Day (WIPD) celebration to help foster a greater understanding of Intellectual Property (IP) rights. For WIPD 2024, the Copyright Alliance, along with our Community Partners and Organizations, will host a panel via Zoom, titled Sustaining and Empowering the Creative Community Through Copyright. Our panel is in keeping with the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) 2024 theme, IP and the SDGs: Building Our Common Future with Innovation and Creativity. During the event, which will be held via Zoom on April 23 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT, we will discuss how creators can meet their goals today while helping to ensure that tomorrow’s creative community is sustained through job growth, a strong creative economy, and continued growth of the arts, all of which are perpetuated through copyright protections. The event will be free and open to the public.
