Global IP Index survey: still time to participate

There are only a few days to go for you to participate in the survey from which the third Taylor Wessing Global Intellectual Property Index (GIPI3) will be compiled.  For those readers who are not familiar with this extremely useful piece of research, the Taylor Wessing GIPI3 team explains:

"... The GIPI1 and GIPI2 reports provided a ranked and fully analysed review of the IP regimes of over 20 jurisdictions globally. ...
Completing the GIPI survey can be as quick and easy as you choose - potentially minutes if answering on a handful of jurisdictions and one IP right. This year the survey has a number of new features:

* you can answer anonymously if you prefer (nb if you give your name it is not released publicly and we do not share data with others)
* there is a new section on data privacy/protection (replacing the domain name section)
we look at unregistered trade mark rights
* we consider the adequacy and alignment of IP laws for the new media era.".
The two previous surveys contained a wealth of comparative data regarding the litigation of patents across the surveyed jurisdictions.  It is hoped that this year's survey will build on them, enabling readers to get not so much a snapshot of litigation conditions but an idea of their progress through time.
