Assessing the Operation of Copyright and Related Rights Systems: Toolkit of Questionnaires for Interviews, Focus Group Studies and Surveys

A solid information base is a crucial asset in the development of coherent copyright and related rights systems. Efficient copyright policies are based on a profound understanding of the copyright system’s operation and the context in which it operates.

This publication presents a toolkit of model questionnaires for the assessment of national copyright and related rights systems, containing supplementary material to a handbook presenting a methodology framework published by Cupore in 2016. The toolkit provides guidelines for researchers collecting data by the means of interviews, focus group studies or surveys. The questionnaires can be used to gather the personal opinions and experiences of the study subjects, as well as to collect expert views on selected topics.
