On July 26 - 27, 2018 The Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, the Honourable Faris Al-Rawi alongside the Comptroller of the Intellectual Property Office, Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Regan Asgarali were welcomed by the Government of St. Lucia who hosted the July 2018 World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) Regional Seminar on the Enforcement of Intellectual Property for Judges and Officials with Jurisdictional Powers.
Established in 1967, WIPO is one of 15 specialised agencies in the United Nations created to promote the protection of Intellectual Property worldwide.
Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind. This includes written and artistic work, inventions, designs and even names and symbols used in commerce. IP can be broken down into categories of Copyright, Trademark and patents.
These categories enable owners of Intellectual Property to earn recognition or financial rewards from their creations, as well as the right to determine how such property is used.
