CCIA Releases Economic Study Calculating Value of "Fair Use"

Washington -- Industries that rely on fair use exceptions to copyright  
law grew faster than the rest of the U.S. economy from 2002 to 2007,  
expanded 5 percent and accounted for 23 percent of real economic  
growth, according to a new economic study. The Computer &  
Communications Industry Association released its 2010 economic study  
"Fair Use in the U.S. Economy" on Capitol Hill today.

CCIA commissioned the study conducted using publicly available  
government data and World Intellectual Property Organization  
methodology. It found companies benefiting from limitations on  
copyright-holders' exclusive rights, such as "fair use" -- generated  
revenue of $4.7 trillion in 2007 -- a 36 percent increase over 2002  
revenue of $3.4 trillion. The most significant growth over this period  
was in Internet publishing and broadcasting, web search portals,  
electronic shopping, electronic auctions and other financial  
investment activity.

As for jobs, employment in fair use industries grew from 16.9 million  
in 2002 to 17.5 million in 2007. One out of eight U.S. workers is  
employed by a company that benefits from protections provided by fair  
use and industries relying on fair use and other copyright exceptions  
make up one-sixth of the U.S. economy, according to the report. The  
report updates a comprehensive 2007 study that shows the importance of  
fair use.
