WIPO for Creators

Promoting Rights Awareness

WIPO for Creators is an open public–private partnership launched by WIPO and the Music Rights Awareness Foundation

Creators worldwide contribute to the richness and diversity of culture and we all enjoy their stories, their music, their films and their art. In order for this to continue, all our valued creators must be equipped with the knowledge they need to successfully manage their intellectual property rights. WIPO for Creators is a unique public private partnership, and with the support of creators, other stakeholders and governments across the globe, it will form a truly open and inclusive community. It will work together to improve networks and infrastructure supporting the growth of creative industries everywhere.

WIPO for Creators aims to raise awareness and increase knowledge of creators’ rights and related management practices, ensuring recognition and fair reward for all creators regardless of their geographical, cultural or economic conditions.
