Last chance to take part in the Global IP Index

James Nurton

The law firm Taylor Wessing is working on its fifth Global Intellectual Property Index, and the deadline to take part is Friday February 5

gipi_logoThe Index ranks jurisdictions based on feedback from IP practitioners in five categories: copyright, designs, patents, trade marks and data protection. 

Everyone is welcome to take part: you can do so online in English, French or German, anonymously if you prefer.

Roland Mallinson of Taylor Wessing says the new interface is very user-friendly: "I would very much welcome wide participation since our aim is to stimulate debate and inform those implementing improvements to our IP regimes. Robust (but printable) views always welcome!"

For more information, read our article about the 2013 GIPI or see Taylor Wessing's dedicated page, which includes an interactive map.
