AdAge reports that Procter & Gamble was the biggest global advertising spender for 2002, laying out a total of $4.48 billion. The company has overtaken General Motors, the top spender of 2001. In total, the top 100 global advertising marketers spent $74.2 billion, an increase of 7.1% on the previous year. To be considered global marketers, companies had to advertise in three of four regions - North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Much of Procter & Gamble’s increase was the result of the purchase and integration of various pre-existing brands and businesses such as Wella, DOVE and SLIMFAST.

The IPKat points out that a global marketing strategy depends on having global trade marks protection. This is now a more easily realisable proposition, thanks to the introduction of the Community trade mark and the recent accession of the United States to the Madrid Protocol.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
