THE RIGHT TO pro­tect your in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty (IP), to use it to your fi­nan­cial ben­e­fit and even to trade with it is be­ing in­creas­ingly recog­nised through­out the world, Werks­mans At­tor­neys says on its web­site.

It’s be­come so im­por­tant that in 2005 the World In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Or­gan­i­sa­tion started cel­e­brat­ing 26 April as world­wide in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty day.

En­cour­aged by the De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try, SA is happy to join in – not only be­cause it wants to raise aware­ness con­cern­ing IP pro­tec­tion in gen­eral but also to en­cour­age com­pa­nies to pro­tect their cre­ations to their fi­nan­cial ad­van­tage.
