Partner Catherine Wolfe has provided comment for Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) regarding the UK government’s new white paper, which outlines its objectives in the intellectual property (IP) frameworks post-Brexit. According to the analysis of the paper by MIP, the UK government plans to establish its own geographical indications (GI) scheme and to explore membership of the Unified Patent Court following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
Although it is noted that the paper lacks detail in regard to IP matters, Catherine highlights the government’s positive commitment towards IP in the provisions set out in the white paper.
