The Hungarian Patent Office's annual report for 2007 can now be retrieved from the Office's website. The report is in English and Hungarian and includes some interesting trade mark statistics:

"The number of national trademarks valid in Hungary amounted to 52 093, which was up by 1577 on the previous year. Hungarians owned 54% of valid national trademarks. The ratio of US proprietors was 21%. The US was followed by the United Kingdom (5%) and Germany (3%). Among the proprietors having the highest number of valid national trademarks, Hungarian and foreign pharmaceutical companies ranked first, such as Richter Gedeon, Chinoin and Glaxo Group.

The classes most frequently indicated in the case of valid national trademarks were: 1) pharmaceutical, sanitary preparations; 2) advertising, commercial services; 3) education, training, sporting; 4) instruments for scientific purposes; 5) paper, packaging materials."
