  • Australian residents are the largest filers in three of the four rights: trade marks, designs and plant breeder’s rights.
  • The US is the second largest filer across the remaining IP rights, excluding patents, where Australia is the second largest filer.
  • The top three destinations for Australians filing patents abroad were the US (41 per cent), European Patent Office (9 per cent) and China (7 per cent).
  • Applications for plant breeder’s rights and trade marks increased relative to 2013, while applications for design and patent rights decreased.
