    Canon Captures Number Two Position on U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Top 10 Rankings for 2005;
     Canon Celebrates Its 14th Consecutive Year as One of the Top Three Patent-Receiving Organizations

    LAKE
    SUCCESS, N.Y. — Jan. , 2006 — Underscoring its commitment to
    pioneering information and imaging technologies and innovations that
    revolutionize workstyles and lifestyles, Canon Inc. today announced
    that it has captured the number two position on the U.S. Patent and
    Trademark Office’s Top 10 Rankings for 2005.
    In 2005, Canon received
    1,828 patents(1), rising one position from its 2004 third-place
    ranking. Canon has been one of the top three patent-receiving
    organizations for the past 14 consecutive years, and number two for the
    total number of patents received in the past 10 years. Canon spends
    nearly eight percent of its yearly sales on research and development,
    allowing the company to constantly be a leading innovator in many
    consumer and business markets.
    “Canon has a long heritage of imaging
    excellence and innovation that has helped us earn the trust of
    customers around the world,” said Joe Adachi, president and chief
    executive officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With that heritage as our
    foundation, Canon leads the market in bringing quality and original
    digital imaging technology to a broad range of consumers, businesses
    and industries.”
    Canon’s heritage of innovation extends back to the
    company’s founding in the 1930′s. Canon released the first 35mm camera
    in 1936 and the first Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) camera in 1959. In
    addition, Canon’s AE-1 (1976), which was the first SLR with a built-in
    microprocessor, was the best selling 35mm SLR camera in history. Also,
    in the mid-1970′s, Canon’s innovative Bubble Jet printing technology
    was born in the Canon Labs.
    From the original laser-based copier to
    the networking and digitalization of the workplace to today’s shift to
    color documents, Canon has set the standard for digital imaging in
    departmental, workgroup environments and high-end production
    applications. Canon entered the business machines industry in the
    1960s, and went on to achieve world-class status for its technological
    innovations. In 1968, Canon introduced a plain-paper copying machine.
    Canon also further improved electrophotography technologies to create
    the full-color copying machine family – the CLC Series – and the
    award-winning imageRUNNER Series of networked digital MFPs, both
    benchmarks for imaging innovation.
