The number of trademark applications by small companies increases in Brazil

The trademark applications made by small entrepreneurs have grown over the past three years in Brazil. Reflecting the policy of the PTO, which created rebates and allowed the deposit over the Internet, the increase reached 100% in some cases. With stats made from payments fees for services of the PTO, the change is evident. Among the cooperatives, the rate grew from 124 in 2007 to 250 in 2009 - growth of 101%. Among the medium businesses in the same period, applications have increased from 2514 to 4624 (an increase of 83%). Among small firms, which are the most representative, applications rose from 23,819 in 2007 to 28,829 in 2009, with an increase of 21%. In this same period, amid the international economic crisis, applications for corporations fell from 73,874 to 70,328 - a negative change of 5.2%. A important factors for this result is the establishment of “e-Marcas” in 2006, which enabled applications over the Internet and the user's life easier. In the balance of 2009, 68.3% of deposits marks were made by the network. Furthermore, it is important to highlight the discount policy of the PTO, since micro-cooperatives and small businesses have up to 60% discount on fees charged by the PTO.
