Our good friends in the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property have let it be known that they are undertaking a project that is designed to assess the cost of infringement of intellectual property rights to business and government.
The Observatory has contracted GfK (could that be a rebranded version of Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung, we wonder) to carry out a survey on its behalf for this purpose -- and the information that they want to gather cannot be obtained without YOUR participation. What's more, this information is crucial to providing the evidence for policy makers to take the proper decisions.
The survey itself is a simple questionnaire which is largely comprised of multiple choice questions. It can be accessed here. It is addressed to a sample comprising the following Member States, in their own language(s): Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Hungary, Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
The closing date for responding is 4 December 2015, which is not very long away. Do please participate!
