Is it possible for an old technology company to put together what is essentially a 13-minute commercial describing their contributions to society and make it compelling and engrossing? Yes, it is.

America's top patent recipient, IBM, put together a beautiful film covering it's 100 years of existence and the remarkable string of world-changing innovations it has delivered:

IBM received an astounding 5,896 US patents in 2010. I do not represent IBM, though I am proud to draft US patent applications and responses for another of America's top five corporate patent recipients.

Congratulations, IBM, on setting a remarkable example as to how a company can utilize patented technology to make a huge impact on our world, through its own efforts and via licensing.
