The Alliance for IP will be hosting the 6th annual British IP Day on Tuesday June 29, showcasing the various contributions that intellectual property (IP) makes to the UK.

The event will reflect on the impact that IP-rich creative industries have on UK growth, and look to a future that values creators.

Creators, businesses, and representatives will come together to exchange insights into their successes, which are underpinned by IP. The event will demonstrate how leading British creators are able to earn a living making high-quality content.

It is anticipated that the Government’s Innovation Strategy will be published this summer: given the intrinsic link between IP and innovation, the theme of this year’s British IP day is innovation. Topics of discussions will also include trade and exports, and how creators and small businesses can benefit from IP.

Guests at the event’s four roundtable discussions include Chi Onwurah MP, Shadow Minister for Digital, Science and Technology, and Adam Williams, Director of International Policy at the Intellectual Property Office (IPO). They will give their perspective on how businesses and creators should be aided by Government and the economy, via IP rich creativity and innovation.

PPA is a member of the Alliance for IP and supports its work promoting and protecting intellectual property rights in the UK.
