UK intellectual property protection abroad
To protect your intellectual property outside of the UK, you usually need to apply in each country.
Intellectual property (IP) rights are territorial. They only give protection in the countries where they are granted or registered. If you only have UK protection, others may be allowed to use your IP abroad .
If you are thinking about trading abroad then you should consider registering your IP rights abroad.
Some countries may allow you to extend your UK protection, and accept it as protected in that country after completing certain local formalities. See: Protecting your UK intellectual property abroad – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
