The Managing IP Market Trends Report identifies 10 key issues for in-house IP counsel for 2023, based on a survey of more than 700 in-house IP practitioners around the world.
Each practitioner was asked to identify the top three challenges they face. The responses fall into 10 categories: litigation and enforcement; emerging technologies; unregistered IP rights; IP management; the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court; geopolitical issues; ESG issues; threats to trademarks; trademarks under attack; and online enforcement.
The report discusses each of these areas in detail, quoting comments from the survey respondents. It also includes data on the IP and law firms that clients use, what influences their choice of firm, how likely they are to change firms, and what their key priorities are.
As part of the report, five experienced in-house practitioners share their insights, providing diverse perspectives from different industry sectors in Asia, Europe and North America.
The report demonstrates the wide variety of issues that today’s in-house IP practitioners face – encompassing developments in law, technology, business models and society in general. The range of responses show that it is an exciting time to be working in IP, and that in-house practitioners are at the cutting-edge of new developments and challenges.
