Never Give Up? (The 15 Applications with Most Non-final Rejections)

I am dealing with jet lag after 2 weeks in Russia (Putin says hi), plus there is a lot going on with the IPO annual meeting in town, so this week’s post falls into the category of quick fun-fact.

Using the Bigpatentdata patent retrieval tool I pulled the title, assignee, and status of each application that has had at least 13 nonfinal rejections. Interestingly, the two leaders are still in active prosecution, so who knows how high they can take the record!
