IP Enforcement Report: some real data for SME patent enforcement

For some SMEs, budgeting for
patent litigation takes up all their
time and resources
The IPKat has already reported the publication of "Intellectual Property Enforcement in Smaller UK Firms", commissioned by the Strategic Advisory Board for Intellectual Property Policy (SABIP) as "an independent input to evidence for policy". You can read the report in full here, with some background from the IPKat here.

PatLit advises its readers that much of the Report specifically addresses the issues faced by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) when contemplating or engaging in patent litigation. Among the other content, much of which is predictable, there is some genuine evidence of SMEs' attitudes towards enforcing patents in the form of tabulated survey results, with comments.
