For the record, the United Kingdom came out top for trade marks and copyright, second for patents (where Germany unsurprisingly led the chart) but only fourth for designs. Germany was top for both patents and designs (ahead of the UK and the Netherlands respectively), but only fourth for copyright.
Further comments on the figures for patents and copyrights can be found on PatLit and the 1709 Blog respectively. Posts on the figures for trade marks and designs will appear on the Class 46 and Class 99 weblogs a later this week.
