What is WIPO?
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It is dedicated to developing a balanced and accessible international intellectual property (IP) system, which rewards creativity, stimulates innovation and contributes to economic development while safeguarding the public interest. WIPO was established by the WIPO Convention in 1967 with a mandate from its Member States to promote the protection of IP throughout the world through cooperation among states and in collaboration with other international organizations. Its headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland. There are currently 184 Member States, i.e. 90 percent of the countries of the world.

Secretariat
The WIPO Secretariat, or International Bureau, is based in Geneva. WIPO staff, drawn from more than 90 countries, include experts in diverse areas of IP law and practice, as well as specialists in public policy, economics, administration and IT. The respective divisions of the Secretariat are responsible for coordinating the meetings of Member States and implementing their decisions; for administering the international IP registration systems; for developing and executing the programs designed to achieve WIPO’s goals; and for providing a repository of IP expertise to assist its members. Among WIPO's principal tasks is promoting the progressive development and harmonization of intellectual property laws, standards, and practices among its member states. Encouraging the growth of international common priniciples and rules governing intellectual property requires extensive consultations with states and other interested groups. Development of intellectual property law activities at WIPO reflect the two major categories of intellectual property. They include development of Industrial Property Law and development of Copyright Law. WIPO's Cooperation for Development Program, as well as its program of Cooperation with Countries in Transition, provide legal and technical assistance in assisting countries develop strong intellectual property laws and systems.
