Building Respect for IP
The respect for intellectual property (IP) as a fundamental principle shared by all WIPO member states, led to the adoption, at the 2008 WIPO General Assemblies, of Strategic Goal VI “Building Respect for IP”. It is a broad, cross-cutting goal that is more inclusive than the narrower concept of enforcement. Strategic Goal VI calls for creating an enabling environment that promotes respect for IP in a sustainable manner, in the spirit of Recommendation 45 of the Development Agenda.
