Madrid System Yearly Review

WIPO has published the Madrid System Yearly Review 2021. It reports that the number of international applications filed fell by 0.6% in 2020 while the number of international registraitons fell by 3.2%.

However, the overall number of active registrations increased by 4%, while renewals increased by 11.6%.

The Review includes a special theme comparing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic with that of the global financial crisis of 2008-09, the only other recent time when the number of Madrid applications fell.
