Unless any information is specifically stated as being free or in the public domain you should assume that it is under copyright.  I t is a good practice that when reproducing somebody else's work to get permission from them.

I would think that a large company would most certainly copyright a survey they have carried out.  Check with the company, they are the only people who can answer your question because it is entirely up to them.
