Today is the World Intellectual Property Day, which was established by the World Intellectual Property Organization on April 26, 2001. 

Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, and symbols, names and images used in commerce. It is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which allows people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create.
