Joint press conference by Michel Barnier, Member of the EC, Benoît Battistelli, President of the EPO, and António Campinos, President of the OHMI and CEIPI, on intellectual property rights

Michel Barnier, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services, Benoît Battistelli, President of the European Patent Office (EPO), and António Campinos, President of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Center for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI), gave a joint press conference following the publication of a study on Intellectual Property Rights, which was carried out jointly by the EPO and the OHIM. This study, “Intellectual Property Rights intensive industries: contribution to economic performance and employment in Europe” (September 2013), measures the importance of Intellectual Property (IP) rights in the EU economy. Key findings of the study are that about 39% of total economic activity in the EU (worth some 4.7 trillion euro annually) is generated by IPR-intensive industries, and approximately 26% of all employment in the EU (56 million jobs) is provided directly by these industries, while a further 9% of jobs in the EU stems indirectly from IPR-intensive industries.
