The Department of Intellectual Property (DoIP), Ministry of Economic Affairs has launched its first Annual Magazine (for FY 2017-18) and an Official Logo on July 24, 2018. His Excellency Hon’ble Tengye Lyonpo graced the ceremony as the Chief Guest.
The Department has developed the Magazine with the objective to increase understanding and use of the intellectual property (IP) by creating broader awareness on the national and international IP systems and the role it plays in the socio-economic and cultural development. In view of this, the Department will be publishing the Magazine annually.
The information disseminated through the Magazine includes basics of the different facets of IP and their legal rights and remedies, context review, graphical statistics, sectoral orientations and case examples among others. In addition, the Magazine also encapsulates the different component of the Department’s milestones, achievements and successes. As such, the magazine will serve as a definitive source of information for the general public, the right holders, IP agents, IP law enforcement agencies, and government policy makers.
The Department’s new Official Logo is developed with the objective to enhance its identity and visibility in carrying out its various mandates to promote and foster innovation and creativity. The Logo itself is composed of our traditional design motifs incorporating the various topics of IP to encourage and inspire creative thinking among our local artists.
