Trademark registration in Europe gives protection in all the 28 European Union Countries. The office of the European Union Intellectual Property Office is the organization that governs all trademark and design-related matters. The EUIPO covers the United Kingdom and also gives protection to the United Kingdom’s trademark in the European Union. However, the situation is a little different after the Brexit Declaration. There is no protection of unregistered trademarks in the European Union like the United Kingdom where unregistered trademarks get protection under the law of passing off. Even if the trademark is unregistered, it will have no protection if it is not registered in the European Union. Trademark registration is one of the most effective ways to get brand protection in Europe. One can also get protection through applying directly to the countries but that will not give protection to other European countries.
