Brexit Through the Lens of UK Copyright

Brexit Through the Lens of UK Copyright

Room U.56

On 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom formally left the European Union, though Brexit will not display its real effects until IP Completion Day, that is 31 December 2020. As things currently stand, after that date and among other things, UK courts will in principle no longer be bound by decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), nor will they be able to refer new cases to the CJEU. This apparent freedom might translate in a different approach of UK legislature and courts to key IP issues. By using UK copyright as a case study, this talk by Prof. Dr. Eleonora Rosati (Stockholm University) will consider to what extent this is however likely to be the case, especially in the absence of a major overhaul of the relevant statute.

Eleonora Rosati is an Associate Professor in IP Law at Stockholm University, a Guest Professor at CEIPI-Université de Strasbourg, a Research Associate at EDHEC Business School, and an Of Counsel at Bird & Bird. A long-standing contributor to The IPKat and an Editor of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (Oxford University Press), Eleonora is the author of several articles and books on IP issues, including – most recently – Copyright and the Court of Justice of the European Union (Oxford University Press 2019). 

Moderation: Prof. Dr. Kristoff Ritlewski (Bucerius IP Center)
