The Turkish Patent Institute and LES Turkey organized a cooperative training program on "Intellectual Property Protection and Commercialization of technology through licensing (PDS 100 Course)" with the occasion of World Intellectual Property Day on April 26, 2013. Due to excessive demand for this training, two separate seminar rooms were dedicated and, each program was given by two certified LES speakers.
Ersin Dereligil, Managing Partner at Destek Patent Inc, made presentations on “Intellectual Property Basics” and “Managing licensing risks”. The course also has two more modules on “Basics of IP commercialization” and “Determining reasonable license fees and royalty rates” in addition to an interactive licensing game at the end.
World Intellectual Property Day – April 26
Every year on April 26, World Intellectual Property Day celebrates innovation and creativity and how intellectual property fosters and encourages them. To increase general understanding of what IP really means, WIPO member states chose April 26 – the day on which the WIPO Convention came into force in 1970 – as World IP Day. Since then, IP Day offers an exciting chance each year to join with others around the globe, to highlight, discuss and demonstrate how the IP system contributes to the flourishing of music and the arts and to driving the technological innovation that helps shape our world
As Destek Patent we commemorate all inventors and congratulate the whole IP world to the IP World Day.
