Bureau of Economic Affairs/U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, “Intellectual Property and the U.S. Economy: Industries in Focus” (2012)

The entire U.S. economy relies on some form of IP because virtually every industry either produces or uses it. The report identified 75 industries (from among 313 total) as IP-intensive.

This estimate falls within a broad $14.2-billion to $90.5-billion range; the breadth of this range is explained by the fact that many firms were unable to calculate such losses. Of the…

This figure does not, however, include counterfeit and pirated products that are produced and consumed domestically, nor does it include the significant volume of pirated digital…
