Which countries have been filing the most International Applications?

The Economist reports that overall the number of international applications fell by 4.5% in 2009 compared with the year before. However, applications from east Asian economies increased slightly and those from China grew by 30%.

Before we get too excited, we should bear in mind that the vast majority still emanate from the United States, making up about 45 000 of the 159 000 filed worldwide.
