Recently the European Commission has launched a survey regarding Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection and enforcement in third countries, targeting EU companies established or operating in third countries (i.e. outside of the EU). The replies to this survey will be taken into account by the EU in reviewing its priorities.
In order to ensure representative conclusions, the survey has been uploaded online in order to make it more accessible to all. The survey, which consists of around 20 questions, includes a brief description of the respondent and specific information about actual infringements suffered by right holders.
The survey is specifically targeted at companies based in Malta who in some way or another operate also outside the EU.
We would be grateful if you could kindly answer the online questionnaire. This will help raise awareness on IPR infringements in countries outside the EU. The deadline for the online survey is the 26th of October 2010 end of business.
