Great hopes for the PPH


Otto Licks and Antonio Morschbacker

The patent backlog at the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (INPI) has been one of the largest in the world for many years. While other patent offices, such as the US Patent and Trademark Office, European Patent Office, Japan Patent Office, China’s State Intellectual Property Office and the Korean Intellectual Property Office have been successful since 2010 in reducing pendency time following the adoption of better procedures, the patent examination delays of the INPI have increased in recent years.
