WIPO Facts and Figures 2011

WIPO Facts and Figures 2011

Ratings: (0)|Views: 83|Likes:
The aim of WIPO’s 2011 IP Facts and Figures is to provide an
overview of intellectual property (IP) activity based on the latest
available year. This publication covers four types of IP, namely patents,
utility models, trademarks and industrial designs and serves as a quick
reference guide for IP statistics. The tables and graphs presented
enable a comparison of the use of these forms of IP across offices as
well as use of WIPO-administered PCT, Madrid and Hague systems.
The data underlying this publication are taken from the WIPO Statistics
Database, which is primarily based on WIPO’s Annual IP Survey and
data compiled by WIPO for the processing of international
applications/registrations filed through the Patent Cooperation Treaty
(PCT), the Madrid system and the Hague system. Data are available
for download from WIPO’s web page: www.wipo.int/ipstats/en.
Every effort is made to compile IP statistics based on the same
definitions and to ensure international comparability. However, one has
to keep in mind that national laws and regulations for filing IP
applications or for issuing IP rights, as well as statistical reporting
practices may differ across jurisdictions.
