SURVEY: How will COVID-19 change global IP strategies?


Managing IP invites in-house counsel readers to take a survey on how COVID-19 will affect IP departments in the next few months

If you are an in-house lawyer, please take our survey on post-COVID-19 global IP strategies: TAKE THE SURVEY

The survey is broken into three sections and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. The more responses we get, the more illuminating the final report will be.

Your participation in this survey is confidential. Data collected will not be shared with third parties and will only be published in an AGGREGATED and ANONYMISED form, unless you are happy to be quoted.

The survey

COVID-19 has created sweeping changes to supply chains, how IP departments operate and the digitisation of products and services.

As IP in-house counsel consider how these issues will affect the way they work, we want to understand how they feel about the changes and what they mean for global IP strategies.

Section one: supply chain changes

Has your company been affected by supply chain changes? How about the trend towards more protectionist government policies in various countries? In this section, we’ll ask you a range of questions about how changes in where, and how, products and services are made and developed are affecting IP strategies.

Section two: changes in IP department priorities

With many countries in lockdown and travel restrictions in place around the world, IP departments have to adapt the way they function. What should IP departments prioritise when working from home? How might IP budgets be affected? Should virtual trials be used in the future?

Section three: focus on digitisation

COVID-19 has fast-tracked digitisation for many companies. What is your company’s approach? How will the increased focus on digitisation affect IP protection? Can new products/services be protected by IP? What challenges will this present?

The results

The results will be released in a three-part report, which will be published in August and include analysis from lawyers. We hope the findings will provide valuable insight on how in-house lawyers think COVID-19 will change global IP strategies.

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy filling in the survey!
