IP Rights Post-Brexit - The Implications for Trade Marks, Designs & Copyright
The current UK regime of intellectual property rights has been significantly moulded by the UK’s membership of the European Union with regulations having harmonised trade mark and design law between all Member States and a number of significant directives having re-shaped copyright, particularly online.
When the transitional period ends on 31 December 2020, unitary trade mark and design rights will cease to apply to the UK and UK-based businesses will no longer qualify for database right in the EU. Consequently, businesses need to prepare now to ensure that their IP portfolios remain fit for purpose in the new global Britain.
This new webinar will examine the specific changes that departure from the EU will bring about and the details of the new regime which the UK government is putting in place.
