Copyright Industries in the U.S. Economy
IIPA first measured the economic impact of the U.S. copyright industries on the U.S. economy in a report issued in 1990. Since then, IIPA has commissioned economic studies identifying these industries’ contributions to the U.S. Gross Domestic Product, employment and foreign sales and exports. Our most recent study is Copyright Industries in the U.S. Economy: The 2018 Report, prepared for IIPA by Stephen E. Siwek of Economists Incorporated (released December 2018).
