IP Creates Jobs for America | BIOtechNow

IP Creates Jobs for America | BIOtechNow: "In May, the Global Intellectual Property Center (GIPC) was proud to unveil the results of our state intellectual property (IP) jobs research, which has been a year in the making. The study, IP Creates Jobs for America, provides real, tangible evidence that the economic benefits of IP are broad and far-reaching."

Go here for the original GIPC report and the interactive US Map.

Key points related to IP Job creation and value generation:

  • Jobs created: 914k
  • Output: $75B
  • Exports: 75.3%
  • Avg Wage: $44k

Interesting is the number of IP jobs created in some state. Of course, CA, FL, NY, MA and TX. But the Great Lakes area has a LOT of innovation as well.

This is some really great information for those who are IP proponents! (And those who question the value of IP to have more to think about.)
