Welcome to the KPMG Intellectual Property newsletter on developments in the world of patents, trade marks, designs, domains and other intellectual Property rights (“IPRs”).

This new publication of the KPMG global network gives you the opportunity to stay close to hot topics and recent developments in various jurisdictions worldwide. In our first edition we want to highlight the consequences of Brexit on intellectual property rights. The article is the first one of a two-part series on the topic, concentrating on the impact on trademarks and designs.

From Bulgaria we delve into the Internet space. As its essential role for commerce is growing, the copyright violation in terms of imitation of a domain/website is becoming a more common infringement of rights among competitors. Recent court decisions and news will complete the picture.

Our IP specialists can answer inquiries in this area. Staying up to date on the latest developments, changes in law and plans for reforms, especially on a global scale can be challenging.
