Copyright-based industries in Slovenia
In 2008 the Office initiated a Study on the Economic Contribution of the Copyright-Based Industries in Slovenia. The study is based on the WIPO methodology and was financed by WIPO and the Slovene Ministry of Culture. It has been concluded and made available online in 2011. The study offers a complex comparative quantitative analysis of the contribution of specific sectors based on the statistics from 2002 and 2007. It reveals that the copyright-based industries contribute 5.1 % to GDP and secure 6.8 % jobs on the national level.
