The Impact of the Brazilian Supreme Court Decision on the Patent Term (RECORDING)

In May, the Brazilian Supreme Court issued a landmark decision declaring unconstitutional the 10-year minimum patent term guarantee. The decision impacts more than 30,000 pending patent applications and patents. In addition, the Supreme Court ruled that the decision applies retroactively to pharmaceuticals and medical device patents. Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BRPTO) is already notifying patent holders of the reduction of the patent term in each affected patent. The Supreme Court decision represents a major change in the Brazilian Patent System.

Please join us as we cover a variety of topics relating to the Supreme Court decision, including:

  • • The decision in a nutshell, highlighting the main conclusions;
  • • Practical aspects for applicants and patent holders considering the new patent term regime in Brazil.
