Brazil has taken major steps to boost the IP system and encourage investment in the country, but has it gone far enough? WIPR investigates.
Known for its diverse wildlife, beautiful beaches, tropical rainforests and much more, Brazil has long been an attractive destination for tourists and explorers.
And it’s been a busy time for the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (INPI) as it boosts transparency, harmonisation and the attractiveness of IP in the country.
“Brazil is continuously attempting to bring IP policy in line with the best international practices, which in turn affords IP rights owners a greater deal of clarity in terms of expectations,” explains Gabriel Di Blasi, managing partner of Di Blasi, Parente & Associados.
