Dear Patent Practitioner:

We would like you to answer the following questions, which should only take you about 10-15 minutes. We would also appreciate it if you could send this survey to other patent practitioners in the life science field, whether they are employed at a firm or a life science company.

You can save the survey and continue at a later time by clicking the "save and continue later" button at the top.


At the end of the survey, you will have the option to enter your name into a drawing for the chance to win one of several prizes, which will be determined at a later date.

The goal of this survey is to determine where biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies should file patent applications on a global and regional basis.

Currently, there are appromixately 196 countries in the world. While 159 countries are members of the World Trade Organization and signatories of TRIPS, 148 countries are members of the Patent Cooperation Treaty.

Thank you for your participation.
