Samsung has been busy stocking up on patents all last year and now has more than any other mobile tech company.

Samsung Building an Arsenal of Patents


A new report just released shows that mobile patents make up 25% of all patents registered in 2012, and guess who has the largest share? That’s right Korea’s very own Samsung.

The Korean tech giant and current ‘winner’ at all things Android, has been heavily stocking up on mobile based patents during 2012 in the hopes to avoid lawsuit trouble, should they have to do battle in court again in the future. Samsung now apparently has more mobile patents than both Nokia and Microsoft, two companies who started stocking up way back in the mid 90’s. 

What do you think of this whole ‘patent war’ culture that has become so big in the last couple decades? Are you sick all of these companies grabbing up patents and then trying to sue one another or is it just the way the business world has to work?
