Governor Brownback: Intellectual Property Creates Jobs for Kansas

By Governor Sam Brownback

Recently, the US Chamber’s Global Intellectual Property Center commissioned a study on the economic impacts of intellectual property (IP) on jobs across America. The findings may come as a surprise to many people around the country, but they certainly won’t shock anyone here in the Sunflower State.

According to the study, available at www.IPcreatesjobs.com, Kansas ranked 1st in the nation in the overall percentage of private sector jobs supported by intellectual property. That’s 603,923 jobs – more than 50% of the private sector workforce in Kansas – that are supported either directly or indirectly by IP industries.
