post Wednesday September 26, 2012


Among the findings of a U.S Chamber of Commerce study: Kansas is ranked highest in the U.S when it comes to jobs that are supported by intellectual property. Kansas is the new home for innovation in America.

In a guest blog on the U.S Chamber’s website, Gov. Sam Brownback applauded a finding that notes that intellectual property supports 603,923 private-sector jobs in the state. He also noted that this nearly matches the 607,484 jobs that are unrelated to intellectual property and that 74.8% of Kansas exports come from intellectual property intensive companies.

According to a study released in March by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the most intellectual property intensive industries include computers, communications equipment, semiconductors and other electronic components, navigational instruments and basic chemicals.
