Measuring the Size of Copyright-Based Industries


Guide on Surveying the Economic
Contribution of Copyright-based Industries PDF, WIPO Guide on Surveying the Economic Contribution of the Copyright-Based Industries

WIPO provides assistance to member states seeking to determine the economic contribution of their copyright-based industries in terms of their share in gross domestic product, generation of employment and trade.  This assistance follows the methodology outlined in the 2003 WIPO Guide on Surveying the Economic Contribution of the Copyright-based Industries PDF, WIPO Guide on Surveying the Economic Contribution of the Copyright-Based Industries

The guide:

  • summarizes existing experience in surveying creative industries, which operate on the basis of copyright and related rights protection;
  • presents a practical instrument in the form of guidelines, recommendations and survey methods to be considered and applied when undertaking surveys on the economic contribution of a nation's creative industries; and
  • establishes a basis for comparison of future surveys built on reliable data and common methodologies.

The results of national studies, prepared by local researchers with the assistance of WIPO experts, are available in the following documents:
