Kuwait Times, publication date: 16 April 2006
"The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) is celebrating its 60th anniversary. On this occasion, Unesco is holding some educational symposiums in Kuwait. Yesterday, the second seminar titled 'Intellectual Property Rights' was held at the Sheraton Hotel. A huge number of school students and members of the Civil Defence attended the seminar.
Kuwait joined the International Intellectual Property Rights Organization in 1999. Now it is also a member of many different international and regional organisations, such as the World Trade Organization. The Ministry of Information is the authority that represents Kuwait in attending international conferences. The ministry also inspects stores that sell copyrighted material."
