"IP Week is to put special focus in our public education activities to raise awareness of intellectual property, as it is integral to everything we do each day. We want persons to be more aware that it is not a concept that is abstract, but it is real.from you wake up in the morning until you go to bed at night, you are either using or creating intellectual property," Miss Davies pointed out.
