Interesting Claim on Big-3 Patents

James E. Malackowski, president and CEO of Ocean Tomo LLC, writes an editorial in today's Detroit News:

As Washington decides on aid to the ailing auto industry, top consideration should be given to the significant potential of these Big 3 technologies for stimulating economic and job growth and creating a greener and more fuel-efficient world . . .

Consider that:

• GM has higher average quality and newer green technology and patents than the other 14 automakers combined.

• Ford and GM together hold approximately a third of all green technology patents and the related value.

• GM has 70 percent of the patents in the emerging technology category. This domestic share increases to 85 percent if Ford is added.

• Ford owns 30 percent of all patents with a similar related value measure in
emission control innovation.
