U.S. Chamber: California a leader in innovation
Orange County Register
So many reports beat up on California as a place to do business. But now the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has just issued a new report that comes to the state’s defense as a leader in innovation.
“Innovation and creativity are vital to California’s economy,” said Mark Esper, in charge of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Intellectual Property Center, which issued the report.
The report notes:
The report is part of the center’s series of State Fact Sheets as part of the chamber’s ongoing push to protect American intellectual property and its patent and trademark systems.
“Intellectual Property, which refers to everything from inventions to the creative arts, drives innovation and improves our lives, generating life saving devices and medicines, discovering new energy and climate-saving technologies, finding novel ways to create and deliver information, and generating consumer goods of all types,” the Global IP Center website says.
