United States: IBM Takes the Lead as #1 Patent Recipient in 2015

IBM has surpassed Samsung and Canon to take the top spot on the list of recipients for US Patents in 2015.  This is the 23 year in a row that technology company IBM has been in the top group of patent recipients.

 

The overall number of US patents granted declined slightly since 2014. The fall followed seven consecutive years of rises in patents being granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
