Wyoming rated 'F' in protecting manufacturers’ intellectual property

The National Alliance for Jobs and Innovation recently scored all 50 states and their relative strength in protecting intellectual property (IP) of manufacturers. It's that IP protection law that gives U.S. businesses the incentive to innovate and the teeth to protect their ideas in the global marketplace. According to 11 separate criteria used by the NAJI to form their report card, Wyoming was assigned an "F" along with 6 other states (Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia). The complete scoring criteria and results can be viewed by clicking here . The NAJI (according to their website) is a nonpartisan organization of concerned manufacturers, associations, academics and other businesses that work together to protect the tools and technologies that U.S. companies use to compete, innovate and succeed. #bootstrapped #news
