Celebrating World IP Day 2013

Since 16 years Marijan Jordan and Gerhard Muthenthaler, the founders of Erfinderhaus and erfinderladen, deal with problems that inventors face in marketing their inventions. Throughout their long careers as invention advisers and marketers, they have noticed that “for protection there are always places to go for help and consultation, but there are no inexpensive ways for market commercialization.”

To solve this problem they created a site that is available for inventors and combines helpful tools to promote inventions: inpama.com! How producers, license holders and distributors can be reached and how inventors can bring their idea successfully to market has been answered in a step-by-step guide.
As Jordan, Muthenthaler and their team know about the problems inventors face and how important it is to protect intellectual property, they decided to support the World IP Day 2013 to:
• raise awareness about the importance of intellectual property
• connect you with other organizations and people in the invention field
• provide useful tips
• give you information about the World IP Day
• publish interesting interviews with people who deal with inventions every day
• help inventors to bring their ideas and IP successfully to market

Message from WIPO Director General Francis Gurry

Today is World Intellectual Property Day! WIPO Director General Francis Gurry took the opportunity to call on young people to talk about IP. Here is his message:

World Intellectual Property Day is an opportunity to celebrate the contribution that intellectual property makes to innovation and cultural creation – and the immense good that these two social phenomena bring to the world.

It is an opportunity to create greater understanding about the role of intellectual property as a balancing mechanism between the competing interests which surround innovation and cultural creation: the interests of the individual creator and those of society; the interests of the producer and those of the consumer; the interest in encouraging innovation and creation, and the interest in sharing the benefits that derive from them.

This year the theme of World IP Day is visionary innovators – people whose innovations transform our lives. Their impact is enormous. They can, at times, change the way society operates.

Take the Chinese innovator, Cai Lun. He laid the foundations for the manufacturing of paper – a technology that transformed everything, because it enabled the recording of knowledge. Then there was the invention of moveable type. This was taken up in Europe by Johannes Gutenberg with his invention of the printing press, which in turn enabled the dissemination and democratization of knowledge. In our own lifetimes we have witnessed the migration of content to digital format, and the great distributional power for creative works that has been brought about by the Internet and the development of the World Wide Web – for whom we have to thank, among others, Tim Berners Lee.

Behind many extraordinary innovations there are extraordinary human stories. At a time when there were few female scientists, Marie Curie Sklodowska had to struggle to establish herself as a scientist in her own right as opposed to the wife of a scientist. She also struggled as an immigrant working in another community. Her desire to understand led to the fundamental discoveries for which she was awarded two Nobel prizes in two separate disciplines – in physics and in chemistry – the only person ever to have achieved this.

In the arts, innovation revolves around new ways of seeing things. A visionary artist or a composer or a writer is able to show us a different way, a new way of looking at the world. Bob Dylan, for example: he captured what was in the air and transformed several genres of music, essentially bending the genres of folk and rock music. Or consider architects – like Zaha Hadid or Norman Foster – who are transforming urban landscapes, and beautifying our existence in new ways, while at the same time taking into account the need to preserve the environment.

We are dependent upon innovation to move forward. Without innovation we would remain in the same condition as a human species that we are in now. Yet inventions or innovations – in the health field for example – are of relatively little value to society unless they can be used and shared. This is the great policy dilemma. On the one hand, the cost of innovation in modern medicine is enormous. On the other hand, the need for compassion, and the need for sharing useful innovations, is also enormous.

I believe we should look upon intellectual property as an empowering mechanism to address these challenges.

But we have to get the balances right, and that is why it is so important to talk about intellectual property. On this World Intellectual Property Day I would encourage young people in particular to join in the discussion, because intellectual property is, by definition, about change, about the new. It is about achieving the transformations that we want to achieve in society.

Welttag des Geistigen Eigentums 2012
Die MARKE – von der Idee bis zur Vermarktung

Im Mittelpunkt der diesjährigen Veranstaltung des PIZ Dresden aus Anlass des Welttages wird das Schutzrecht Marke sein. Die Marke dient der Kennzeichnung von Produkten oder Dienstleistungen, bietet Schutz gegen Nachahmung, beeinflusst Kaufentscheidungen und ermöglicht die Bewerbung eines Produktes. Anderseits kann die Verletzung von Markenrechten zur Gefahr für die Existenz eines Unternehmens werden. Hier finden Sie den Flyer und das Programm.

im Patentinformationszentrum (PIZ) , Andreas-Schubert-Bau, 1. Etage, Zellescher Weg 19, 01069 Dresden, am 25. April 2012, 10:00 bis 16:30 Uhr an. Hier der Anmeldungs Formular:



Der 26. April ist der Welttag des geistigen Eigentums. Dieser Tag wurde von der Weltorganisation für geistiges Eigentum (WIPO) initiiert, um für die Notwendigkeit und die Möglichkeiten zum Schutze von geistigem Eigentum (Patente, Marken, Geschmacksmuster) zu sensibilisieren.

Das Patentinformationszentrum (PIZ) von Rheinland-Pfalz nimmt sich nunmehr seit fast 131 Jahren dieses Themas an. Am Welttag des geistigen Eigentums bietet das PIZ an der TU Kaiserslautern zwischen 9 und 16 Uhr in Gebäude 32, ergänzend zu den üblichen Dienstleistungen, Einführungen in die qualifizierte Patentrecherche sowie kostenlose Markenrecherchen und Erstberatungen durch einen Patentanwalt an.
