In this paper, we use patent statistics as the recent status of R&D in international patents. The number of patents was used to compare different countries’ share in the overall number of technology patents. Using the degree of patent citations, the influence and technological prowess of patents were examined. Also, implications were drawn from an analysis of patent contents for realistic media.
