The only other U.S. company to make the top 10, Microsoft fell from third place to sixth place, according to IFI Claims Patent Services’ list http://www.ificlaims.com/index.php?page=misc_Top_50_2011 of the top 50 U.S. patent assignees. HP and Intel fell out of the top 10 and landed 14th and 16th, respectively. Apple moved up to No. 39 after breaking into the top 50 for the first time http://www.networkworld.com/news/2011/011011-patent-winners-ibm-apple.html last year. Asian firms account for 25 of the top 50, and U.S. firms hold 17 slots."
