Brazil enhances the recognition of renowned Trade marks

After Brazil ratified the Madrid Protocol, the registration of Trade marks at the Instituto Nacional da Propriedade (INPI) and the recognition of high renown trade marks has a less strict criterion. In order to become a high renown trade mark in Brazil: after registration, marks have to go through a specific proceeding at INPI, which will get them a declaration of high renown valid for 10 years.

More than 100 renowned trade marks are already benefiting from this unique protection in Brazil.
