A copy of the paper is available here.  A detailed analysis of what this means will follow...

The Daily Fail/Wail/Pail/DogWagsTail has already run a story on it...

The heading gives a misleading impression that this post only relates to Brexit issues around Ireland and Northern Ireland. Wouldn't a mention of IP be appropriate?

Quite clear that the UPC is excluded from consideration, since it is not mentioned in the list of relevant rights.

To add to Cherrypicker's point, and unless I have missed it, there does not appear to be any mention howsoever of rights of audience and representation, reciprocal or otherwise.

There are a lot of demands [these are guidelines, but any assiduous observer of the UK/EU negotiations should know to construe them as such by now] by the EU about the transposition of EU concepts into UK law (GIs, EU UDR, EUTM seniority, etc.) and it'll be interesting to see what the UK side makes of it.
