BREXIT EU TRADE MARKS and DESIGNS
Following last year's quick heads-up (https://www.jdip.co/blog/category/brexit ), we learnt this week that agreement in principle has been reached with the EU on the UK remaining in the EU trade mark and design systems until the end of 2020. Furthermore, and as expected, existing EU registrations will be converted to UK national registrations. We all hope that this process will be free and automatic, but this is still to be decided. A nine-month conversion period will be allowed for EU trade mark and design applications which are still pending at the end of 2020 to become the basis for new UK national applications.
