World Book and Copyright Day - PPA Today

World Book and Copyright Day

| | Comments (1)

April 23, 2007 marks the 12th annual celebration of "World Book and Copyright Day."  In 1995, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared April 23 a day to promote reading, creativity and the protection of intellectual property.  The date was derived from a Catalonian tradition commemorating the death of author Miguel de Cervantes. On this day books were exchanged for roses throughout the region.

Events held on this day intend to inspire young people to consider the importance of social and cultural contributions to humanity.  UNESCO Director-General, Koïchiro Matsuura said “the Day has always been closely associated, from its inception and throughout all these years, with an awareness of the importance of the moral and heritage protection afforded to works of the human spirit and their creators.”
