Patent Wars: A New Age of Competition (Infographic)

Quoting from PC Magazine,

Last year alone, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) issued 107,792 patents, and the top five organizations that had the most patents approved are all in tech: IBM (5,866); Samsung (4,518); Microsoft (3,086); Canon (2,551); and Panasonic (2,443). IBM has actually been the top patent awardee for the past 17 years, but as the infographic notes, its portfolio is not considered to be the most valuable. That honor goes to Microsoft.
