Cardiff to Host World Intellectual Property Organisation Forum
DELEGATES from around the world will be heading for Cardiff this month for the World Intellectual Property Organisation's annual two-day forum which is hosted by the Welsh Assembly Government.
The forum, which will be held next Wednesday and Thursday at the Millennium Stadium, is a globally acknowledged gathering of leaders in the field of intellectual property, its promotion and protection. It has only been organised outside Geneva on two previous occasions and it is the first time it has been held in Wales.

You can control the use of your IP, and use it to gain reward. This encourages further innovation and creativity.
Delegates at the forum will be welcomed by First Minister Rhodri Morgan at a reception in Cardiff Castle while the opening address will be given by Baroness Morgan of Drefelin, parliamentary under secretary of state for Intellectual Property and Quality. …
