With a few weeks left in the year, Ars Technic has a look at which patents are the most expensive in the United States today, based on the number of dollars invested by companies in them.
That number is calculated by taking into account the value of the company’s patent portfolio, as well as the number that the patent office has issued and the number granted.
The result is a number that will likely fluctuate throughout the year.
Here are the top five patents in America in 2017:1.

The new patent system that came into effect in the US in 2017.2.
A patent-based system that allowed companies to get patent-pending technology into the hands of people in the first place.3.
A system that made it easier to file patents in the U.S. without the expense of going to court.4.
A “patent-free” tax credit that allowed inventors to file patent applications without paying any royalties to the patent owners.5.
A new patent that allowed individuals to earn up to $1,000 per patent application.
The patent-free tax credit would have been eliminated by the end of 2017, but a similar system was put in place in 2017 for the first time.
The patent system implemented in 2018 that allowed patent owners to receive tax credits to buy up to three patents and to invest them in inventing new technologies.
The tax credit is worth an average of $1.5 million a year, and there’s a cap on the amount of credits an inventor can receive.4: The patent-exempt tax credit, which allowed inventing inventions that are not covered by a patent.
5: A system implemented by Congress in 2018 for small businesses that are allowed to deduct the patent-inventing expenses from their taxable income.
The Patent Office is working on a patent-exemption for personal use of a smartphone.
“As of today, it is more than six years since the patent system was first established,” said Eric Tannenbaum, a senior vice president at the patent and trademark office, in a statement.
“It is time for the patent economy to return to its roots and be treated as a resource that is used by the community in ways that are appropriate for it.”
The Patent Office has been tweaking its system for the past year, but it’s not yet ready for the new tax credit system.
It’s also not clear how it will address a patent backlog that has been growing at a pace of 10 percent a year for the last six years, according to Tann
