1IntroductionWIPO – Making IP Work
 WIPO is the global forum for intellectual  property policy, services, information and cooperation.  We are a self-funding, specialized agency of the United Nations, dedicated to making IP  work for innovation and creativity. At WIPO we believe that IP and innovation go hand-in-hand. IP is about rewarding people for their ideas and original creations. It is about encouraging businesses to invest in innovations and new solutions. It is a means of enabling innovation and creativity for the benefit of all.
 Why WIPO? Because for IP to work well – so people everywhere can benefit from it – the international IP system needs to be efficient. It needs to be easily accessible  worldwide. And it needs a set of rules agreed internationally – which balance the interests of those who produce and those who consume the fruits of innova-tion and creativity. Meeting these needs is what drives our work at WIPO.
Our role is to enable governments, businesses and individuals throughout our 187 member states to realize the potential of IP as a driver of innovation, because we believe that – in every society – innovation is one of the most  powerful forces for human progress.
Our goal is to make IP work. For everyone.
Why WIPO?
 
So what is IP?
Intellectual property (IP) is gener-
ally described as referring to “cre-ations of the mind.” These include
inventions
;
literary and artistic works
;
designs
; and
symbols
,
names and images used in com-
merce
.IP is protected in law through, for
example,
patents
,
copyright
,
in-
dustrial designs
or
 trademarks
.
These enable people to earn rec-ognition or financial benefit from
what they invent or create, by giv-
ing them certain rights to determine
how their creations may be used
by others.
