There will be some surprising results this time, I suspect. This from CPA at their survey site:
An increasing awareness of the importance of intellectual property (IP) rights to business success has led to unprecedented growth and transformation in the IP sector in recent years, but where does the industry go now?
In the State of the IP Industry 2009 survey, IP professionals revealed that they were coming under increasing pressure to reduce their IP management spend, while generating increased profits from their existing assets. In this year’s survey, we are tracking updates to that position and asking practitioners to set out their views on what is likely to happen moving forward.
Results will be released at this year’s INTA conference in Boston, Massachusetts and will be available on www.ipreview.com from 24 May. Take part before 26 April 2010 and you will also be entered into our free prize draw to win a Sony VAIO W Series mini notebook worth £500.
