The trend of registration applications for patents and trademarks at the State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM) is constant, which shows that the economy is moving, Tatiana Radu, an Expert with OSIM’s Strategy – International Cooperation Service, told Agerpres on Thursday.
“We are on a positive trend. We have not declined, which is important. We have a constant trend and in some areas we see increase in registration applications, which means that the economy is moving.
Last year there were 1,050 patent applications and some 1,060 two years ago. In terms of trademarks, OSIM records annually around 10,000 trademark applications. The differences are very small. We have a constant level in registration,” said Tatiana Radu.
Most of the registration applications are in the field of daily necessities, mechanics, chemistry and the fewest in the field of textiles and paper.
OSIM experts participated on Thursday in the PRIA Registered Trademarks conference.
