Celebrating World IP Day, April 25, 2017

The U.S. Embassy celebrated “World Intellectual Property Day” on April 25, 2017 by hosting a screening of the Oscar-nominated movie, “Hidden Figures.”  The film was selected as it celebrates diversity and innovation at NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

In her opening remarks, Chargé d’affaires Stephanie Syptak-Ramnath emphasized to students in the audience the importance of protecting intellectual property (IP) rights, as we celebrate World IP Day and the innovative contributions made by creative minds.

Partnering with the Motion Picture Association (MPA) to recognize the importance of IP, we would like to thank Golden Village and World Intellectual Property Organization for their support as well. #WorldIPDay.
