World Intellectual Property Day 2013 – "Creativity: the next generation”


"To help empower our investors and creative minds (…) Europe needs to put in place a seamless, integrated Single Market for Intellectual Property Rights. We need a robust, economically efficient and coherent 'Intellectual Property infrastructure', covering proper legal recognition, simpler and more affordable registration, facilitated exploitation and effective enforcement of intellectual property rights". Statement by Commissioner Barnier on the occasion of the World Intellectual Property Day 2013.
