WIPO Developing Educational Tools Aimed at Developing Countries

The World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) and the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) announced on March 1, 2005 that they will jointly develop interactive multimedia content on intellectual property (IP) for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). "Intellectual Property Panorama," which will have 10 modules dealing with patents, trade secrets, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright, patent information, marketing, licensing, e-commerce, IP audit and enforcement of intellectual property rights, will be rolled out over the next two years. The first 30-minutes overview module will be released in March 2005.

"This interactive multimedia content should prove to be a versatile educational tool that would also be suitable for use in e-learning programs for owners, managers and key employees of companies, in particular in small and medium-sized enterprises, in developing countries, as well as at some leading universities in the Republic of Korea and abroad," he added. Dr. Idris thanked KIPO for its contribution.
