legal disputes have to take place in the UK and if/once they really left the EU, people won't be able to go to the European Court for revision any more (nobody knows by now, because their exact status will have to be negotiated). Also there's some potential the UK could then make laws that wouldn't have been compatible with EU law (because if they're "out" they can). On the other hand, particularly in the field of copyright, as has stated Frederik above, there are international agreements and trade treaties, on a global level between most countries, and there are very strong lobbies (some say content mafia) to keep it like this.
