IP’s Value to American Innovation
One important way to help encourage innovation is through the protection of intellectual property (IP). The investments necessary to develop IP are often quite substantial. Firms and individuals, in order to invest the necessary resources, need some assurance that they will benefit from and recover the costs of the creation of intellectual property. IP rights help protect authors, inventors, and merchants of goods and services from having their creations and innovations quickly and easily exploited by other firms or individuals, diminishing the benefits to the inventor of the IP. This reduction in private benefits to be gained from the underlying innovation could, in turn, reduce the incentives to undertake the investments necessary to develop the IP in the first place.
Certain industries find IP protection to be especially important and consequently register a relatively high number of patents, trademarks, and copyrights compared with other similarly sized industries.
Innovation protected by IP rights is key to creating new jobs and growing exports. Innovation has a positive pervasive effect on the entire economy, and its benefits flow both upstream and downstream to every sector of the U.S. economy. Intellectual property is not just the final product of workers and companies—every job in some way, produces, supplies, consumes, or relies on innovation, creativity, and commercial distinctiveness. Protecting our ideas and IP promotes innovative, open, and competitive markets, and helps ensure that the U.S. private sector remains America’s innovation engine.
There is a broad range of industries that benefit from IP, both directly and indirectly, and for every innovation in a given industry, generally there are corresponding economic opportunities for other industries to bring advances to the public. Examples of these complementary industries include the computer manufacturer that uses inputs made by semiconductor firms to make the hardware that is needed to run applications made by software companies, the Internet company that generates the on-line applications to distribute copyrighted music, and the auto manufacturer that incorporates patented energy-saving engines in the cars it sells. In each of these cases, industries are supported by the complementary products and services of another industry, so each industry is in a position to benefit from the safeguard of the IP underpinning their business models. When companies are more confident that their ideas will be protected, they have the incentive to pursue advances that push efficiency forward, costs down, and employment up.
Further evidence of this domino effect is seen as downstream businesses benefit from innovative products that lower their costs and improve their processes and finished articles. For example, a more precise machine could make manufacturing pharmaceuticals safer; a more reliable software program could improve military hardware while making it more affordable; or a clearer sound system could boost the quality of a recording studio’s album. In each of these cases, and many more, the innovation feeds directly into a new finished article or service that has commercial value. The innovation may increase customer satisfaction through a higher quality product or service or decrease production costs. This additional value can help businesses protect earnings that can support their labor force.
Finally, in addition to the companies that produce, complement, and consume the innovation, logistical and supporting businesses are required to keep these companies up and running. These entities include marketing firms that inform consumers about innovations that can save time and money, packaging companies that ship advanced goods to retailers, and Internet service providers that create and maintain the communications pathways needed to compete in an increasingly on-line world.
