Intellectual Property — A Solution for America’s Challenges

The GIPC is pleased to unveil our newest video, highlighting the importance of intellectual property to America’s job growth and economic prosperity. This video showcases the simple facts about IP—IP-dependent industries represent 40% of America’s economic growth, account for more than $5 trillion of the gross domestic product, and comprise more than half of all exports. Additionally, 18 million Americans work in IP-intensive industries. These jobs often pay better and are expected to grow faster over the next decade than the national average.
