PATENTS

In Brazil, a process or product that meets the requirements of novelty, inventive step and industrial applicability can be object of protection by Patent of Invention. The improvement to the same inventive concept already deposited by the same inventor can be asked as Certificate of Addition. In case the product only presents a new form that results in functional improvement, it can still be patented, as Utility Model. The objective of a Patent, either as Invention, as Certificate of Addition or as Model of Utility, is to guarantee to the applicant the right to hinder that a third one produces, uses, sales or imports the product or process of production object of protection.
