Knowledge Is Capital for Europe’s Future – Netopia Op-Ed in EurActiv

Netopia’s new report Immaterial Value Creation in Europe looks at how much European businesses rely on intellectual property rights. A lot, it turns out. 44% of jobs and 51% of revenue in primary industry sectors rely heavily on IPR, finds Dr Nima Sanandaji who has written the study. Far from being a vested interest for smaller sectors, intellectual property rights are the fundament of the European economy. And the importance increases.

Today, Dr Sanandaji and yours truly discuss these findings in an op-ed at EurActiv. Enjoy!
