EU: Citizens' Attitudes Towards IP

The EU IP Office (EUIPO) has updated its 2013 survey about European attitudes towards intellectual property. The findings of the EUIPO's extensive survey reveal that 97 per cent of Europeans believe that IP should be respected, and that inventors, creators, and performing artists need to be adequately remunerated for their work. The full report, entitled “European Citizens and Intellectual Property: Perception, Awareness and Behavior”, is based on over 26,000 interviews of people across all 28 EU member States about their perceptions of IP.
