The May 2012 figures for the Golfball Index (the count of nep patents for golfballs) were again somewhat lacklustre. As in April 2012 there were just 7 new US golfball patents. But the index made good headway back into positive territory during June 2012 – when the US patent office issued no less than 10 new patents for golfballs.
Caution with regard to forward-looking statements: Historical data should not be taken as an indicator of future performance. The Golfball Index may go down as well as up.
