    SurveyOn 100 enterprises which benefit of an IP pre-diagnosis in 2005

    • 92 % declare a level of satisfaction good or excellent

    • 80 % have a better understanding of IP and of the advantages IP could provide to their company

    >Grandir avec la propriété industrielle


    The survey also gives an insight on what motivate enterprises to get an IP pre-diagnosis

    • The enterprise never applied for a patent but has an innovative technical project that it wants to protect

    • The enterprise is a subcontractor of a big company but its “niche market” is disappearing (restructuring, delocalisation), she needs to innovate to survive

    • The enterprise is victim of counterfeiters, but without any IP applications

    • The decision makers are curious and want to know more

    >Grandir avec la propriété industrielle


    how French SMEs perceive IPR

    • Cons

      • Enterprise perceives IP as complex and administrative

      • Enterprise doesn’t see itself as innovative

      • Enterprise considers that an IP policy is expensive

      • Enterprise has no financial strength to defend their IP in case of litigation

      • Enterprise products have a short life

    >Grandir avec la propriété industrielle


    how French SMEs perceive IPR

    • Pro

      • Enterprise is a start-up, she needs to raise funds and to use the technical guarantee and backing provided by patent

      • Enterprise wishes to develop a project in partnership and wants to alleviate any possible future conflict on the sharing of the rights

      • Enterprise gets knowledge that their competitors apply for patents and wishes to keep a technological advantage
