Global Intellectual Property Index: can you help?

The survey which provides the basis for Taylor Wessing's second Global Intellectual Property Index has now commenced. This index presents a comprehensive statistical comparison of IP protection and enforcement in 22 significant jurisdictions, rating each jurisdiction for protecting and enforcing patents, trade marks and copyrights.

This year's survey has been expanded to cover three additional jurisdictions (the EU as a whole, Ireland and Turkey) and two further IP rights (design protection and domain names). There's also a specific question on the perceived cost-effectiveness of enforcing IP rights in the various jurisdictions, given the current state of the economy and the recent focus on litigation costs.
