Streaming wars in Brazil

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has just published a creative economy note on the streaming wars currently going on in the Brazilian market.

In Brazil streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix or Claro Video are fighting for new subscribers (let's not forget about the new streaming service "Disney+" too), that is why WIPO has carried out a reasearch to check whether exclusive content in Brazil is increasing piracy, whether it means less financing for individual movies and what this means for policy.

Although IPRs tend to be associated with technological industries, companies operating in the fashion and related industries also benefit from them. IPR protection is the cornerstone to fight against piracy and counterfeiting, preventing free-riding of your commercial and innovative efforts. And the Latin American countries represent a huge market full of potential customers. In fact, the annual growth rate of the fashion industry in Latin America between 2017 and 2021 is estimated to be 7.2%, reaching a total of 193.5 million euro.

Idea/expression dichotomy in Ecuador

Sam and Daisy, two young French artists, started negotiations with Cherryland, a well-known Ecuadorian company that organises outdoor activities.

The parties held several meetings in Quito and, after analysing the whole portfolio, Cherryland’s representatives selected eight of the artists’ plays, which had all previously been registered in the Ecuadorian Intellectual Property Office (SENADI). Eventually, however, the Latin American company only bought rights for three of them and requested the right to adapt another one for a new project.
