Chamber of Commerce, IP jobs

From the ^ link:
Quote:
  • America’s IP-intensive industries employ more than 19 million workers—at all educational and skill levels.
  • From 2000 to 2007, the annual salary of all workers in IP-intensive industries averaged about 60% more than for similar workers in non-IP-intensive industries.
  • IP-intensive industries account for approximately 60% of total U.S. exports—rising from $665 billion in 2000 to $910 billion in 2007.
  • In 2008, U.S. intellectual property companies in the manufacturing and nonmanufacturing sectors generated nearly $7.7 trillion in gross output, accounting for 33.1% of total U.S. GDP.
