Trademark applications in the UK double since 1995
Trademark applications in the UK have doubled since 1995.
The report shows that the rise in trademark applications has been driven by UK residents.
The largest amount of registrations (9%) came from advertising and business management/administration companies in 2017 and they have more than doubled at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) across this time period.
The report also comments that stakeholders have suggested that trademark applications have increased since the Brexit referendum due to uncertainty.
