Intellectual Property Newsletter (Edition 1/ 2021)

Welcome to the KPMG Intellectual Property newsletter on developments in the world of patents, trademarks, designs, domains and other intellectual Property rights (“IPRs”). KPMG firms are proud of their global network, with IP lawyers, enabling KPMG professionals to offer an international service to clients in this area.

In our first edition we want to highlight the consequences of Brexit on intellectual property rights. The article is the first one of a two-part series on the topic, concentrating on the impact on trademarks and designs. Other articles focus on out-of-court dispute resolution in copyright matters, the protection of minors in a digital world and the latest patent law reform on China, focusing on its impact on pharmaceuticals. This topic is also intended as a two-part series. Recent court decisions and news will complete the picture.
