Summary:
Microsoft currently has more than 8,500 issued U.S. patents, with more than 15,000 more pending. Microsoft’s portfolio continues to grow at a higher rate than most companies in the top 25 of patent issuers, and was one of only five in the top 25 to receive more patents in 2007 than in 2006. PressPass spoke with Bart Eppenauer, chief patent counsel and associate general counsel at Microsoft, and the individual responsible for the oversight of Microsoft’s Patent Portfolio, about how the company accomplished its rise to the top of these two IP rankings and what this means for the company and the industry going forward.
