DecisionQuest National Juror Attitude Survey:

General Attitudes Towards Intellectual Property - Patents

What's Inside

DecisionQuest’s National Juror Attitude Survey Report: Intellectual Property - Patents is designed to provide patent litigators and their clients with insight and analysis about jurors and their opinions of the patent process, the PTO and their preconceived notions about inventors and patent holders.

The data we present tells a story of jurors having a lot of faith in the PTO, and who believe that companies frequently steal ideas from each other. The result is a low bar for those trying to prove infringement.
