Errors in the data?[edit]

I have a strong suspicion that the data is messed up. Look at the number of patents in force in 2010 vs 2007. Huge swings - or else Japan and the US are in the wrong positions.

Further http://www.wipo.int/ipstats/en/statistics/patents/ seems to show that the data on this page is messed up

yes the data generally seems out-of-date or wrong, see this PDF for recent patent figures --Kai Carver (talk) 21:01, 28 September 2012 (UTC)


VANDALISM There has been vandalism obviously in the list of countries by patents granted in 2011, with North Korea nº 14 and Mexico nº 10.--83.32.84.197 (talk) 13:31, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
