According to a recent World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) press release, the 900,000th trademark under the Madrid system has been registered. Madrid registration no. 900,000 (Gryphon logo shown here) was registered to Chaozhou Fengxi at the Jinbaichuan Porcelain Crafts Factory for "Glassware for everyday use, including cups, plates, kettles and jars included in this class; liqueur sets; ceramics for household purposes; services (tableware), not of precious metal; toilet utensils; China ornaments; spice sets; pots, not of precious metal; vases, not of precious metal; flower pots." It is estimated that the 1,000,000th trademark registered under the Madrid system will be registered within the next three years, noting that less than 34,000 international trademark applications were filed in 2005. The Madrid system, administered by the International Bureau of WIPO, functions under the 1891 Madrid Agreement and the 1989 Madrid Protocol.
