#CopyrightCreates: Report Reveals Copyright Industries Contribute $1.2 Trillion to U.S. Economy

December 6, 2016

Copyright industries contribute a record $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy and employ more than 5.5 million American workers, according to a new report from the International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA).


This morning on Capitol Hill, a bipartisan group of lawmakers joined the IIPA for a press conference to highlight the report, “Copyright Industries in the U.S. Economy,” and the positive economic impact of books, music, films, television, software, newspapers, video games, and other creative works.
