Table 1 shows that the overall number of trademark registration applications filed in the Russian Federation in 2010 increased in comparison with 2009. The increase represents 13.45 per cent, mainly as a result of growth in the number of applications received from Russian applicants (up by 23.77 per cent) and the negative momentum of applications filed according to the Madrid Agreement or Protocol Procedure was preserved (a fall of 5.45 per cent).
As regards trademark registration, a fall of 3.45 per cent was observed, and that trend has been established as a result of applications from foreign applicants, the number of which fell by 10.62 per cent, while slight growth was noted among Russian applicants, of 2.71 per cent.
