Dee Breger's Velcro image appears in the World Intellectual Property Organization children publication, Inventions and Patents. The publication is geared towards children ages 8-12 worldwide to encourage children to create and patent their inventions. The piece about Velcro describes how nature inspires inventors. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is part of the United Nations system concerned with promoting the protection of industrial property (patents, industrial designs, and trademarks) and copyright throughout the world.
