Why should you spend your valuable time on this? Well, it will feed into the EU’s negotiations with the relevant countries, and so if you have a particular axe to grind about misuse of your trade marks in China, or prosecuting your patents in Brazil, you can make your point here.
Previous surveys in 2006, 2008 and 2010 allowed the Commission ‘to focus resources and attention on third countries where IPR issues are of most pressing concern’, as explained in a 2013 Commission report. The views of survey respondents feed into bilateral agreement discussions and ‘IP dialogues’ with non-EU countries.
The EU has an active IP cooperation with China, for example. Benoit Misonne and Dan Prud’homme of the EU's IP Key project report that a series of rule changes are expected in China in 2014. The main driver for these changes are the growth and development of China's own industry. But this article emphasises the importance of comments from EU businesses, saying that 'Feedback from numerous Chinese government ministries and agencies indicate that these comments and suggestions are taken seriously and often integrated into the reform process.'
Although the political realities prevent these problems from being solved overnight, your views would lend the negotiators the support they need for their task.
