BREXIT – RESUMEN DE LAS CONSECUENCIAS RELATIVAS A LA 'IP'

brexit 1La tormenta todavía no ha pasado pero el resultado del referéndum del Reino Unido está claro: han votado a favor de la salida de la Unión Europea (Brexit). Mientras que la fecha de dicha salida dependerá de la negociación política sobre la ejecución de la cláusula 50 del Tratado de la Unión Europea, la cual será el enfoque de amplios debates y comentarios durante los próximos meses y años, estamos entrando en un periodo de relativa incertidumbre dado que es la primera vez que un estado miembro saldrá del bloque Europeo. Una vez que el Reino Unido salga de la UE, la ley Comunitaria dejará de tener efecto en el Reino Unido y desde una perspectiva de 'IP', surgen numerosas preguntas, principalmente, en cuanto a la protección y la aplicación de derechos de patentes, marcas y diseños.

NEW EUROPEAN DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

May the 25th 2018 will mark a defining point in the regulation of privacy throughout Europe. Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and Council, dated 27th of April 2016, has finally come into effect – after a long and complex legal process initiated in 2012-, regarding the protection of physical persons with respect to the processing of personal data and the free circulation of said data. The Directive 95/46/EC has consequently been abolished.

Said Regulation, (henceforth, the GRDP - General Registry of Data Protection ['RGPD – Registro General de Protección de Datos']) –is applied directly to Member States (without the need for national transposition), although a transitory period until May 25th 2018 has been established for its application, to all effects.

Brief information about.....

New EU Trade Mark reforms were enacted in December, which introduce some important very important practical changes on matters relating to Community Trade Marks “CTMs”. Some changes will be implemented from March 23rd 2016; others in September 2017. We have set out below the most important and relevant of them.

Priority claims will now be have to be filed together with an application, not subsequently.

Change in renewal fee due date

Renewal fees must now be paid by the renewal date, rather than at the end of that month.
