What do you need to know about the protection of your Intellectual Property rights in the United Kingdom?
12 November 2020
The transition period agreed by the European Union and the United Kingdom ends on December 31, 2020. At the expense of knowing whether there will be agreement or not and if this term will be extended, certain questions remain unanswered that the Intellectual Property right holders need to solve.
From ClarkeModet we collect the most common questions and answers to act before the end of the transition period and preserve your Intellectual Property rights in the country with all the guarantees. The following are some of the questions:
Is the EU trademark protection maintained in the United Kingdom?
Will there be additional costs to protect community IP assets after the transition period?
What happens with rights granted before said date having their renewal expiring within 6 months after January 1, 2021?
And what about other community rights such as plant varieties, unitary patent, appellations of origin, or domain names?
