Today’s OpenPath Solution guest blog post comes from two amazing international lawyers who I

Brazilian Intellectual Property Protection Is in Line with Many Developed
Brazil has become an appealing outsourcing jurisdiction in terms of
technological standards, competitive pricing, and –most importantly-
enforceability of intellectual property rights.  Brazil’s intellectual
property legislation is in line with most developed countries, and its
enforcement is increasing and recognized as essential to Brazil’s economic
development.  As a signatory of several fundamental intellectual property
international treaties, with laws in place that meet international
intellectual property standards, and with substantial enforcement of
intellectual property rights, Brazil provides greater protection of
industrial and intellectual property than most developing countries and
emerging economies.  As a result of the enforcement of this legislation, a
foreign contracting company can intervene, protect, and enforce its
intellectual property rights related to software developed in Brazil with
reasonable commercial certainty.
