The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) continued to help ensure that the rights of creators and owners of intellectual property (IP) were protected worldwide, thus ensuring that inventors and authors were recognized and rewarded for their ingenuity. During 2005, WIPO membership increased to 183. The number of States adhering to the treaties administered by WIPO also increased: as at 31 December, 168 States were parties to the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property, 160 to the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, and 128 to the Patent Cooperation Treaty. World Intellectual Property Day was celebrated on 26 April under the theme “Think, Imagine, Create”.
