Our literature survey identified two future scenario plans relating explicitly to IP in the year 2025. These plans highlight geopolitical trends and ambitiously try to map the future role of IP within these larger, tectonic shifts. The first plan resulted from the European Patent Office (EPO)’s scenario planning process completed in April 2007, the most extensive and innovative process of its kind in the IP sector. The other scenario plan consists of alternative stories on IP in the year 2025, by Halbert (2001). While not the outcome of an institutional scenario planning process, the latter scenario plan nevertheless presents a useful comparison with the EPO scenario plan.
