How to mitigate IP risks?

AMR research did a survey “B2B Collaboration: Protecting Critical IP in a Global Marketplace” where they have asked companies how they mitigate IP risks – loss of IP. The result is somewhat interesting. Most use in-sourcing of sensitive components and are pretty succesful with this strategy. The second most used stategy is outsourcing  based on strength of IP laws which surprisingly is not that effective (35% of the companies use it but only 17% find this the most succesful method).

The solutions proposed by AMR in the report is of course education and involvement of top management or in short move IP awareness forward in the mind of the company.
