Microsoft Patent Milestone

Microsoft recently passed the 10,000 patents milestone and are now on 10,541 according to Gizmodo.

“Is that a lot or is that rubbish?” you ask, as did I. Well Apple have a mere 2541 patents in their name so 4 times that amount is pretty good going :-)

However, IBM lead the field with a whopping 53,413 patents with 4000 of them in 2008 alone!
