Taylor Wessing launches fourth Global Intellectual Property Index
Taylor Wessing has launched the fourth Global Intellectual Property Index, which provides a comprehensive assessment of how intellectual property regimes around the world compare with each other.
This fourth edition assesses the regimes of 36 jurisdictions, using more than 14,000 jurisdiction assessments from senior industry figures, balanced with 74 objective factors.
The overall results (covering copyright, trademarks, patents, designs and personal data protection) are best understood by considering country groupings or ‘tiers’ of intellectual property competitiveness, based on their rating.
Key findings include the UK being the top-ranked jurisdiction for intellectual property competitiveness overall in a close cluster (0.2 per cent score difference) with Germany and the Netherlands.
