New Director General for WIPO

The IPKat is proud to announce the results of its poll to determine its readers' choice for the position of Fantasy WIPO Director General. The results are as follows:
1. The Cat in the Hat (69 votes): ELECTED
2. James Bond (52 votes)
3. Asterix (39 votes)
4. Tintin (34 votes)
5. Mickey Mouse (24 votes)
6. Snow White (8 votes)
7. Shamu (6 votes).
The Cat in the Hat (right) was created in 1954, which makes him the same age as WIPO DG Kamil Idris (below, left) according to some opinions. Despite his acute physical deformities, which caused some to question his credentials as a member of the feline species and even to suggest that he was a primate, the Cat in the Hat has been a dedicated supporter of literacy programmes in the developed world, enabling generations of illiterate Americans to master the 223 words that would take them from cradle to college. Known for his affection for children and his passion for catterel (that's doggerel for cats), he is one of only a few creatures whose escapades have had the distinction of being translated into both Latin and Yiddish.

If any dedicated reader would like to write a new mission statement for WIPO in the style of the Cat in the Hat, this weblog will be delighted to publish it. Just send it here, marked "WIPO".

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
