LXer: IBM sets patent record in 08

Published at LXer:

IBM earned 4,186 U.S. patents in 2008, becoming the first company ever to earn more than 4,000 U.S. patents in a single year. IBM's 2008 patent total is nearly triple Hewlett-Packard's and exceeds the combined 2008 patents of Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Oracle, Apple, EMC, Accenture and Google. Samsung had the second most patents, with 3,515 issued last year, according to IFI Patent Intelligence. This is the 16th consecutive year IBM has led in U.S. patents.
