Infinite Possibilities – The U.S. Chamber International IP Index, 4th Edition
The 4th Edition of the U.S. Chamber International IP Index, Infinite Possibilities, maps the IP environment in 38 economies around the world, collectively accounting for nearly 85% of global gross domestic product (GDP). Each economy’s score is based upon 30 indicators spread across six categories – Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, Trade Secrets, Enforcement, and International Treaties.
Infinite Possibilities re-evaluates IP policies in the 30 economies from the 3rd edition and also includes 8 new economies: Algeria, Brunei, Ecuador, Israel, Italy, Poland, Sweden, and Venezuela. Additionally, the Index includes six new correlations on the relationship between strong IP rights and socio-economic benefits: access to finance, high-quality human capital, foreign direct investment attractiveness, inventive activity, advanced technology markets, and streamlined and enhanced access to creative content.
