Rumblings from the UK: Staying Safe During Brexit
May 2, 2017
Recent word from colleagues in the United Kingdom is that while European Union trademark filings and registrations still cover the UK, with Brexit underway the best bet these days is to file for EU coverage and UK coverage if the UK is a target for your business.
This is not to say that EU marks will not be honored in the UK in some fashion-the point is that with the current Brexit-generated uncertainty the safest plan is to secure intellectual property under UK IP laws to have confidence as to how that intellectual property will be treated.
This is not an emergency, but it is an inevitability. Consider your coverage, your business, use of your IP, develop a plan, and implement it. Contact us any time to discuss.
