British IP Day
The Alliance first established British IP Day in 2016 to celebrate the huge contribution that intellectual property makes to the UK, both culturally and economically.
In 2019, creators and IP-rich business owners from across the diverse industries represented by the Alliance once again descended on Parliament. There, designers, authors, musicians, brand owners, artists and publishers met with MPs to tell the story of how crucial intellectual property is to their work and success.
This year British IP Day will take place on Wednesday 1 July 2020.
This year marks the 5th year of British IP Day, and whilst the usual celebrations are on hold, now more than ever we need to ensure the voice of creators are heard as trade talks continue.
With the Trade Bill currently passing through Parliament, IP & Trade will take focus during this year's IP Day activities. To aid the ongoing Parliamentary debates, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Intellectual Property is holding an online meeting on the day, bringing together parliamentarians and IP and trade experts, in order to highlight the priority trade issues for IP sectors.
We will also be presenting our annual IP Champion Award, awarded to those who have taken an active role in promoting the protection of IP, and fighting against IP infringement.
