WIPO Initiatives

WIPO is committed to making sure that copyright law works in action and that creators are given due for their creations. WIPO is therefore involved in a number of practical infrastructure initiatives which reinforce the value of copyright, creativity and culture.

  • WIPOCOS - Software for Collective Management of Copyright and Related Rights
  • GDA - Improving the efficiency of copyright registration processes through IT automation
  • Vision IP - Facilitating access to information and cultural content by the blind, visually impaired, and other reading-impaired persons
  • Trusted Intermediary Global Accessible Resources (TIGAR) - Providing access to copyright protected literary works in accessible formats to people with print disabilities across borders
  • Enabling Technologies Framework (ETF) - Increasing publications accessible to people living with print disabilities
