Independent Inventor Utility Patents By Country, State, and Year
(December 2014)

PARTS A1
Granted: 01/01/1975 - 12/31/2014
A Patent Technology Monitoring Team Report


Description of the Report

An independent inventor patent, for purposes of this report, is a patent that has ownership that is unassigned or assigned to an individual at the time of grant (i.e., ownership of the patent is not assigned to an organization). Please note that some U.S. origin patents are assigned to foreign individuals while some foreign origin patents are assigned to U.S. individuals. Therefore, the sum of counts of U.S. origin independent inventor patents usually will not equal the sum of counts of patents owned by U.S. individuals and the sum of counts of foreign origin independent inventor patents usually will not equal the sum of counts of patents owned by foreign individuals.

This report displays the number of U.S. patents granted to independent inventors as distributed by U.S. state/territory and country of origin and by calendar year of grant. The origin of a patent is determined by the residence of the first-named inventor. Each independent inventor patent is counted only once. Independent inventor patent counts are displayed by ownership category in a small table at the end of this report.

This report counts documents of the following type(s):
utility patents (i.e., "patents for invention")
granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office during the period 01/01/1975 - 12/31/2014. These profiled documents hereafter will be referred to as "patents".

The source of the data used for this report is the TAF database maintained by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Report Printing and the Use of Spreadsheet Software

This report can be printed from an Internet browser - for such printing, optimal results are usually obtained by printing in landscape orientation with minimal margins and a small text font. Microsoft Internet Explorer, version 7, works particularly well for printing this report using its "Shrink to Fit" option.
