Statistic country profile
Dates may be absent or inaccurate for some years and bureaus. - A local nomination relates to an nomination made in the host Member State by its own national, while a non-resident nomination relates to an nomination made by a non-nomic notifier. When you file an international registration, it relates to an international registration submitted by a non-German authority established in that state.
- IP applications and Economics list patents, trademarks and designs applied for by filers from this state ( "resident + abroad") world-wide. - An application to the Eurasian Intellectual Property Organization (EAPO), the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI), the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) or the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) is considered to be equivalent to several applications abroad in each Member State, while an application to the European Intellectual Property Office (EPO) or the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) is considered to be an application abroad due to a missing indication of the name.
- The number of applications classes: This is the number of categories indicated in a trade mark registration. Within the interna-tional trade mark system and at certain domestic and provincial registries, an applied for trade mark may apply for a trade mark which defines one or more of the 45 goods and service categories of the Nice Classification. Coffices use a single or multilevel storage system.
Thus, for example, the bureaus in Japan, the Republic of Korea and the United States of America (USA) as well as many patent agencies in Europe have multi-level storage facilities. Bureaux in Brazil, Malaysia and Mexico operate a single-class registration system that requires a specific registration for each category in which an applying for trade mark registration is filed.
In order to record the difference in the number of registrations between the bureaus, it makes sense to make a comparison of the relevant number of registrations and the number of registrations. - It' all about the user design: This is the number of registered models included in a registered Community design request. The Hague system for the international registrability of trade marks allows an applier to protect up to 100 registered models of the same category with a simple patenting.
A number of intellectual property authorities, either nationally or regionally, allow more than one registered Community Design to be used for the same or within the same category of products, while others allow only one registered Community Designs per filing. To record the difference in the filing numbers between the OHIMs, it makes sense to make a comparison of the numbers of filings and designs.
