More European trademarks for the first half of the year

EUIPO published statistics about IPRs filing during the first six months of 2021. According to the data, European trademark applications have increased with 25% compared with the same period of the last year reaching 101 021. The increase in design applications is 2%.

What’s interesting but not so surprising is that this increase in the trademarks target goods and services such as data processing equipment and computers, business management, and scientific and technological services and research, reflecting the changing needs of consumers and health authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
