On 23rd June 2016 (23/06/16), the UK voted to leave the European Union. No country has ever left the European Union before, and no one knows what to expect. One certainty, however, is that there will be significant implications for owners of intellectual property rights, which are, of course, territorial by nature. As the Brexit process is about to start,over the coming months and years (Brexit is expected to take around 25 months from now to be complete), we will be making those implications clear in our "2306" Brexit Bulletins for IP.
