The two BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partners Dr Rudolf Böckenholt and Dr Michael Rüberg have contributed an article to the newspaper “Medien und Recht International” (MR-Int, 3/2016, p. 95) entitled “Brexit and the consequences in IP”. The two specialist layers for industrial property protection focus on “Brexit”, the result of the referendum held in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union and the anticipated consequences in the field of IP Law. To this end, they highligh initial developments and recommend strategic approaches to secure IP rights. They also explain the possible consequences for patents/SPCs, possible consequences for trade market, designs and other rights. “Of course, irrespective of the type of IP right affected, rightholders cannot accept gaps in protection and cannot wait to see how things develop for an indefinite period. Even if Brexit doesn’t mean effective departure, rightholders should now check their options and take advice on how to proceed,” is the recommendation of the two authors.
