The Creative Barcode, Brexit preparations complement the UK Government recent reassurances to business that EU intellectual property rights [for existing registered designs and trademarks] will continue to be protected in the UK, at no-further cost. Existing EU trademarks, registered designs and unregistered designs will be ‘cloned’ onto the UK register.
The Creative Barcode system will enable UK firms to communicate the IP registered or unregistered status of their designs and trademarks and copyright works. Further, the millions of Creators, who rely on unregistered design rights and unregistered copyright can strengthen their protection and reduce infringement opportunity utilising the Creative Barcode digital system.
Referring to the UK Government position, Robin Walker MP said: “We have agreed to protect all existing EU trade marks, community registered designs and unregistered designs in the UK as we leave the EU. The creative industries can therefore be confident that their existing intellectual property rights will not be diminished, and that the UK will remain one of the best places in the world to protect and enforce IP rights”.
However, no clarity is yet offered by government regards the UK firms future access to EU IP systems.
Hague and Madrid systems will continue unchanged for multi-country design and trademark registration and international systems, remain unaffected.
Creative Barcode is a not for profit organisation. Its early stage IP system precedes designs, trademarks or patent applications registered with National, EU, Madrid, Hague and international systems. With users in more than 30 Countries, it is recognised as one of the most innovative and yet easy to use, IP and safe disclosure systems. It has never been breached.
It is endorsed and supported by World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) mediation service and the British Library, IP Centre, London
