These numbers come from the Re:Create Coalition, an advocacy group that addresses copyright issues. The organization says that it represents "a cross-section of creators, advocates, thinkers and consumers" and claims, "There has been no better time for creativity in history."

This data comes from the organization’s report titled "Unlocking the Gates: America's New Creative Economy".
