Supplementary notes

This figure distinguishes between absolute counts and equivalent counts. Based on equivalent application class counts, applicants from Germany had the highest level of trademark filing activity worldwide. This was due not only to their high application class counts at the German office and at numerous offices abroad, but also to their frequent use of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market—with its multiplying effect—in order to seek trademark protection within the entire EU. See the glossary for the definition of equivalent application.
