    XEROX : RANKS 28TH IN U.S.
    PATENTS IN 2009

    Xerox Corp. was
    issued 624 U.S. patents in 2009, an 18 percent increase over 2008, data
    from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office shows. Xerox ranked 28th on
    the list of the top 50 firms to receive U.S.-based utility patents last
    year.The annual corporate ranking released Tuesday by IFI Patent
    Intelligence, part of Wolters Kluwer N.V., U.S. corporations garnered 49
    percent of all U.S. utility patents issued in 2009, with the remainder
    going to foreign firms.

    This was only the second time foreign
    companies collectively received more U.S. patents than U.S.-based firms,
    the agency said.”It’s foolhardy to use this statistic to infer that
    American firms are losing ground to foreign competitors because with
    patents it’s important to consider quality, as well as quantity,” said
    Darlene Slaughter, general manager of IFI Patent Intelligence, in a
    statement. “What we’re seeing this year is that innovation in American
    firms is far from declining, in fact, many had impressive gains and
    several posted record numbers of total new patents.”

    As a whole,
    U.S. companies received roughly 7 percent more utility patents in 2009
    than in 2008, compared with 6.5 percent by foreign companies.Tokyo-based
    Fuji-Xerox Co. Ltd., a Xerox joint venture, received 425 U.S. patents
    last year and ranked 45th on the list.
