Patent Wars Infographic

This very interesting infographic shows patent wars and patent deals among tech companies between 2008 and 2012. Although it appears that there’s a lot of suing going going on, a closer look shows there’s more collaboration than battle in shear numbers of patents.

Motorola Mobility, Nortel, IBM, Microsoft and AOL are most active in making patent deals, suggesting an emphasis on open innovation. Apple is most active in suing, as well as being sued.
