Madrid Highlights: lots of facts and figures for you

For those who enjoy reading facts and figures, here's some good news for you. According to our friends at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO):

A record 49,273 international applications were filed in 2015 under the Madrid System for the International Registration of Marks. Applications rose by 2.9% over the previous year, with the United States of America and Australia accounting for 90% of that growth. Recently released figures also show that China, the United States of America and the European Union were the three most designated Madrid members last year, with recent new members, India and Mexico also included in the list of top ten designated members.
 
Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis AG was the top filer in 2015, with 197 applications, followed by German retailer LIDL (152) and L’Oréal of France (130).

All this, and a good deal more, comes from WIPO's Madrid Highlights 1/2016. For more of the same, just click here.
