Number of trademark applications on the rise

The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) received more trademark applications between April and August 2020 than during the same period last year.

The number of national trademark applications filed between April and August this year was 1509, which is 29 percent more than during the same period in 2019. The number of trademark applications filed as of the beginning of this year is 14 percent more than last year. In previous years, the number of trademark applications has remained very stable.

Despite the increased number of applications, the processing times for trademark applications have remained very short. The average processing time for new applications is less than a month.

Although the number of new trademark applications has increased from last year, old trademarks have not been renewed as frequently. The number of trademark renewals made this year is 15 percent less than in 2019.
