IP rights and prosperity

The International Property Rights Index is an international comparative study that measures the importance of property rights - physical and intangible, including - of course! - intellectual property, and their protection, for ecomonic prosperity. This year's report, which has just been released, analyses data for 125 countries, which together account for 97 per cent of world GDP. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, it finds a close correlation between the protection of property rights and economic well-being. This comment on the Copyright Alliance blog is also worth reading.
