General Court’s decision about Brexit

What will happen to UK and EU trademarks in light of Brexit negotiations starting tomorrow? Last week, the General Court issued a decision (Case T-421/18) confirming that Regulation (EU) 2017/1001 fully applies until the end of the transition period on December 31, 2020, which may be extended once, for a maximum duration of up to one or two years. It follows that the opponent had a legitimate interest in filing an opposition to a EU trademark on the basis of earlier UK trademarks.
