The government of the UK has recently published a series of technical notices about IP rights in case no deal is agreed in the Brexit negotiations.

These technical notes are aimed at helping businesses and citizens understand what they need to do and allowing them to make informed plans and preparations.

The most recent technical notices on IP were published on 24 September 2018 under these four titles:

  • trade marks and designs if there is no Brexit deal
  • patents if there is no Brexit deal
  • copyright if there is no Brexit deal
  • exhaustion of intellectual property rights if there is no Brexit deal
