    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.
