New WIPO Study Gives First-Ever Figures on Value of “Intangible Capital” in Manufactured Goods

Geneva, November 20, 2017PR/2017/813
Go to: WIPR findings | Case studies: Smartphones, Coffee, Solar panels

Intangible capital will increasingly determine the fate and fortune of firms in today’s worldwide value chains.
WIPO DG Francis Gurry

This amount, some USD 5.9 trillion in 2014, shows that intangible capital contributes twice as much as buildings, machinery and other forms of tangible capital to the total value of manufactured goods. This underscores the growing role of intellectual property, which is frequently used to protect intangible and related assets in the world economy.
The “Worldwide Intellectual Property Report 2017: Intangible Capital in International Value Chains” (WIPR 2017) looks at how much income accrues to labor, tangible capital & intangible capital in international value chain production across all manufacturing activities, representing one quarter of total global economic output, with case studies focusing on coffee, solar panels & smartphones. It examined national accounts and intercontinental trade statistics from around the global & company data to provide these economic insights.

Domain Name System
Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,”IDNs are domains that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet “”a-z””. An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European “”0-9″”. The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domains, termed “”ASCII characters”” (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of “”Unicode characters”” that provides the basis for IDNs. The “”hostname rule”” requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the…
