IEEE Spectrum’s 2010 Patent Power Rankings Published

The Patent Power scorecard ranks companies, universities, and research institutions by their US patent portfolio. In summary,

“Japanese companies rise to the top of IEEE Spectrum’s Patent Power rankings thanks to shrinking U.S. innovation pipelines.”

” Based on data from 2009, out of the 323 leading organizations in the scorecards, 65 (20 percent) are Japanese. This percentage is markedly higher than in the 2007 scorecards, in which 45 out of 319 companies (14 percent) were Japanese.”

And, an interesting side-note on the university scorecard:

For 2009, the top five universities are: Texas, California, Central Florida, Iowa State, and Washington… Quite a shift from 2007 when the top 5 were, MIT, CalTech, Harvard, California, and Rice.
