IP and the Economy

Intellectual property is essential to America’s position as a high tech leader in the world, contributing a staggering $5 trillion to the economy and is responsible for more than 40 million American jobs. IP intensive industries account for 38 percent of American GDP and 74 percent of American exports.

Protecting IP is essential to America’s ability to compete in markets around the world, America’s economic growth, and American jobs. If American companies cannot protect their investments in cutting-edge research and development, they will lose the ability to compete with emerging global competitors.
