Recently we carried out a snapshot 60 second survey on Intellectual Property (IP) in conjunction with ADS, ScotlandIS and SCDI. We were keen to learn more about how businesses are dealing with such valuable key assets and what IP issues are of most importance to them. Responses were received from both large and small companies from a broad range of sectors.
The survey asked a number of key IP related questions such as whether audits were carried out to keep a track on the extent and value of IP, how it was used on social media platforms and whether businesses were involved in IP disputes. The results provide an interesting snapshot and insight into how businesses are dealing with IP as well as highlighting some areas where altering how IP is managed could improve the competitive advantage it gives to a business as well as maximising commercial returns.
