New Version of Electronic Filing System

The Brazilian Trademark Office has recently announced a new enhanced version of the Brazilian Trademark Electronic Filing System (e-marcas 2.0), to be launched on October 3rd, 2011.

The new version is expected to enable a more secure environment (digital certification) for users and a more user-friendly interface with applicants, also helping reduce impaired functioning, which may occur in the current version.

The use of the new system is expected to contribute to the increasing number of applications, which is likely to reach 150,000 this year – a substantial increase of 15% when compared to 2010.

The new version shall also enable the implementation of multiclass applications and co-ownership of trademark registrations, which are relevant steps for the implementation of the Madrid Protocol.
