We monitored the patent publications of Google for the past 20 years at the USPTO. Google’s Patent portfolio shows that its footprints are in 66 different technology areas ranging from 3D Animation to Selective Visual Display Systems.
Below are the top technology areas of their interest –
|Technology Areas||Number of Applications|
|Computer Graphic Processing, 3D Animation, Display Color Attributes,Object Processing, Hardware & Memory||4915|
|Databases & File Management||4476|
|Graphic User Interface and Document Processing||3540|
|Selective Visual Display Systems||2469|
|Multiplex and VoIP||1827|
Since they have patents covering a wide array of technologies so we thought why not check which type of companies are getting blocked by these patents. Interestingly, ~74000 rejections (102/103) were given based on Google’s patents.
Refer to the table below for more information:
|Number of Blocked Assignee||7334|
|Number of publications monitored||27105|
|Publications involved in rejections||14110|
|Number of 102/103 rejections||74020|
