Abstract

An online public consultation on the efficiency of proceedings and accessibility of measures for the civil enforcement of intellectual property rights was launched on 30 November 2012 and closed on 30 March 2013. The questionnaire was made available in English, German and French but responses were accepted in all official languages of the Union. This survey was part of a more general consultation process that has lasted for over two years and from which conclusions will be drawn in a future Communication from the Commission.

Main Results of the Study

This study provides a synthesis of the responses to an online survey about the civil enforcement of copyright and other intellectual property rights within the European Union. About half of the respondents identified themselves as rights holders. The survey did not test a particular proposition, but was designed to provide information for a future Communication from the European Union on Intellectual Property enforcement.
