Brazil: BRPTO and the DKPTO Sign Agreement to Expedite the Prosecution of Patent Applications

The Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BRPTO) just announced that an agreement was signed with the Danish Patent and Trademark Office (DKPTO) to expedite the prosecution of patent applications through a Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) Program, wherein the Applicant may request the fast-track examination of its application in Brazil or Denmark after being granted by the other.   Brazil is the first country of South America to which the DKPTO signs a cooperation treaty.
