Brexit and IP Practice: What does it mean?

As we all know, Brexit happened yesterday (I guess depending on your time zone).  I am disappointed by the vote, but that is democracy.  It was relatively close, but over 17 million voters unhappy with the status quo is significant.  I am not a European IP attorney, but I thought it might be helpful to collect some of the links to advice concerning the IP fallout from Brexit.  Here are a few: 

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

Carl Oppendahl

Afro IP via Darren Olivier (Brexit implications for Africa)

Fashion Law Blog


Foley & Lardner via National Law Review

Kluwer Patent Law Blog

Shepherd Wedderburn

Bird and Bird

World Intellectual Property Review

In fact Brexit won't happen for over two years, at least, and it was not close at all as only 37.5 per cent of voters supported "leave".
