ACID are hosting a Brexit Breakfast Meeting

November 22, 2018

6 December 2018 – 8:30 for 8:45-9:45

In the immortal words of High Court judge, Sir Colin Birss; “Brexit is boring” but whether you voted for it or not, the UK will be leaving the EU on 29 March 2019 (probably).

We might leave with a trade deal in place, we might not. There might be a transition period, there might not. But one thing is certain, now is the time to start preparing yourself for B-Day and what better way to do this then by attending a talk all about how your intellectual property rights might be affected by the biggest political event of a generation?

As the negotiations have progressed we have gradually been given details of what will happen to European intellectual property rights and how they dealt with when the UK is no longer a member state. Designs and trade marks are most affected by Brexit as many of the rights relied upon by UK businesses are European-based. Great care therefore needs to be taken when managing and enforcing these rights both before and after the big day.

Our talk, in conjunction with ACID, will seek to answer questions such as; how will intellectual property rights be affected by Brexit? What should be done, in respect of each area of intellectual property, to maintain a continuity of protection? And, how will this change with or without a deal and with or without a transition period?

Brexit doesn’t have to be boring so join us on 6th December 2018 and we’ll promise to keep you entertained… at least until the next referendum.
