Summary:
To get full value out of the innovations that Europe produces, do we need to do more to protect intellectual property on a global scale? Yes, but first of all, we have to get it right in Europe, and there is still work to do on that. Internationally, enforcement is quite a challenge – especially for smaller companies.
