Summary:
Microsoft received 1,649 U.S. patents in 2007, the most by far of any software company, according to the Patents Scorecard produced by IEEE Spectrum and released this week. Microsoft topped the computer software category with a Pipeline Power score of 3,505. The score reflects number of patents issued, growth in patent activity relative to the previous five years, the number of patents that cite other patents issued in the previous five years and the variety of technologies covered in a company's patents.
