Calling all creatives - the Alliance for Intellectual Property (AIP) is running a survey on the future of Intellectual Property (IP).

According to the organisation, with the European elections in 2014 and a general election in 2015 in the UK, now is the time for IP-rich organisations and creatives to come together and make their voices heard.

The alliance is asking creators and businesses across the UK for their views on how they think the government can best support those who rely on IP for their livelihood.

Susie Winter, director general of the AIP said: ‘We all now need to think to the future about what it is that we need from them [government] over the next few years so that, by 2020, the UK is the best place to start, build and base an IP-rich business.

‘This is not intended to be a re-run of past reviews into the intellectual property framework. Rather it is designed to look at what the next government should, or indeed should not, do to ensure the UK’s IP-rich businesses flourish.’

Head to www.surveymonkey.com/s/AllianceCallforViews make your submission in the AIP survey.

The deadline for submissions is 17 January 2014.
