New EUIPO paper on economic impact of COVID-19

The EUIPO has published a new paper on “Leading indicators for IPR-intensive industries”.

It follows earlier papers published on the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis on industries that intensively use IP rights, and provides indicators for the EU and the four largest member states (France, Germany, Italy and Spain).

According to the abstract: “This paper presents leading indicators that provide early signs of the future trends of IPR-intensive industries. They do not allow the forecasting of the expected value of the IPR indicators in future months, but they show when the indicators will change from an acceleration to a deceleration phase (or vice versa) with up to 7 months of advance.”

This paper focuses on the timing of the recession and recovery phases and the number of industries trending upward in each month, providing evidence about the scope of economic recession and recovery phases.

It includes sections on diffusion indices for IP rights in general, as well as trade marks, designs and patents.

You can read and download the paper in full on the EUIPO website here. The image shows the front cover.
