Will Brexit Impact my Trademark Rights in Europe?
Rest easy, trademark owners! While the UK has voted to leave the European Union, it is expected to take at least two years for that to occur. Here is what trademark owners need to know:
- Brexit will not impact your nationally-registered UK trademark rights.
- Your European Union registrations are still in force in the UK.
- New provisions eventually will be put in place that will keep your EU rights in effect in the UK when it leaves the EU.
- We are closely monitoring all developments to ensure that our clients' rights are protected and maintained.
- Stay tuned for more developments.
If you have further questions about the implications of the UK Referendum on your intellectual property rights, or about other trademark matters, please contact Catherine Farrelly at (212) 826 5579 or firstname.lastname@example.org, Donna Tobin at (212) 705 4878 or email@example.com or any other member of the Frankfurt Kurnit Trademark & Brand Management group.
