Due to the recent decision of the Brazilian Supreme Court, the Brazilian PTO is no longer authorized to automatically grant patents with an adjusted term of protection in order to compensate the delay during the examination proceedings caused by the Brazilian PTO.
Accordingly, the minimum term of 10 years counted from the grant decision for patents of invention and 7 years for patents of utility model are no longer applicable. The term of protection is now restricted to 20 years counted from the filing date for patents of invention and 15 years for patents of utility model.
Such decision has affected granted patents for specific technologies, such as pharma related inventions, but may also affect applicants whose patent applications are pending for several years.
The objective of this webinar is to raise awareness of the tools available at the PTO so as to expedite examination as well as the judicial measures.
