World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

In 1989, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) continued development co-operation, standardization and registration activities to promote respect for the protection and use of intellectual properties, including industrial property and copyrights. During the year, the organization’s development co-operation programme further expanded, as did activities related to norm-setting in the exchange of industrial property information and the international registration of marks, patents and industrial designs. During 1989, diplomatic conferences convened by WIPO adopted two new treaties—on the International Registration of Audiovisual Works and on Intellectual Property in Respect of Integrated Circuits—and a new Protocol to the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks.
