Description
Since the Third Edition of this book, a little over four years ago, the future has changed. Yet nearly two years after the referendum on leaving the European Union we still are unaware of what the future might be. While patent law will probably be less affected by the United Kingdom leaving the European Union than other areas of law or, indeed, intellectual property law, there are still a number of very significant questions outstanding. As we write, only a day after the publication of the Draft Withdrawal Agreement, it is still far from clear whether it will be accepted or amended; whether we will end with 'no deal', this deal or something else. So, as we write, the final outcome might become known within days, weeks or, if the Agreement is eventually ratified, years. When the book was written even the possibility of reaching a draft Agreement was uncertain and so we adopted the approach of simply stating the law as currently is with the United Kingdom firmly as a member of the EU. We did this for two reasons. First, there are so many variables that the speculation could have gone (and could still go) in many different and contradictory directions depending on the political weather. Second, and more importantly, we were bound to be wrong about what happens and we did not want to commit our mistakes to print when we might be found out so quickly. Nevertheless, in the day since the publication of the Draft Agreement we have made a few notes in the book of what it provides in relevant respects upon the United Kingdom leaving the European Union. We do not pretend to have fully taken it into account.
