CHINA TOPS TRADE MARK TABLE

Asia Times reports that China has filed the largest number of trade marks applications in the world for the second year running. Last year the total was 452,000, but this year the Chinese are set to top that total with 268,000 received by the first half of 2004. China now has 2.134 million registered trade marks.

The IPKat says, that’s one almost every two minutes.
