What does Brexit really mean for IP?

There has been a lot of panic about the impact of Brexit. For the few of you who aren’t familiar with the concept of Brexit, it was one of the many unexpected political events of 2016.

In short, the UK held a non-binding referendum regarding whether the UK should remain a member of the EU. A slight (52%) majority of the people who voted in that referendum (around 70% of eligible voters) voted to leave. As a result, the UK is heading toward complete constitutional upheaval with no real understanding of what the alternative to EU membership might be.
