商標登録insideNews: Brexit to Begin Transition Period for Brand Owners Seeking UK Trademark Protection | JDSupra

Brand owners seeking to do business in Europe are well-advised to apply to register their key brands as trademarks. With the United Kingdom formally leaving the European Union as of January 31, brand owners seeking protection in the UK will have two choices: i) they can wait to extend their trademark registrations from the European Union pursuant to a transition process expected to be finalized in the year ahead; or ii) they can plan pro-actively to file UK trademark applications in the months ahead, before the “Brexit” transition is complete.

記事によれば、英国での商標登録の保護を求める場合、1)移行期間の終了時に期待される移行処理による保護の英国への拡張を待つ、或いは2)移行期間の終了までに積極的に英国の商標出願を行う、を選ぶことになりそうです。移行期間の終了と共にどうなるかの動向を注視する必要があります。
