With focus currently on Brexit, it is easy to miss that as of 14 January 2019 changes will come into effect that impact owners of UK trade marks or those that wish to obtain a UK trade mark.

The changes are based on the EU Trade Marks Directive 2018 that will require the Trade Marks Act 1994 (“the Act”) to implement changes to harmonise it with EU law (irrespective of Brexit).
