The aim of the survey is to give an indication of the state of Intellectual Property (IP) awareness in the UK across IP engaged businesses.
Highlights from the report show:
- 42% of IP engaged respondents check they are not infringing other people’s IP. The most popular IP management activity amongst respondents
- 28% of firms in the IP engaged community provide staff training on IP. This is 10% for firms responding to the main survey
- 66% of the IP engaged respondents had protected some sort of IP (either through a single right or a combination). This compares with 52% for respondents in the wider business population
