Co-Ownership of Trademarks Possible Now

As of September 15, 2020, the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO) is accepting applications for trademarks in co-ownership. Co-ownership was already accepted for patents, industrial designs and copyrights.

Under the BPTO’s Resolution 245/2019, co-ownership is possible for new filings as well as for trademarks that were filed or granted prior to the Resolution becoming effective. In both cases, a provision of the Brazilian Law requiring that the applicant or the owner (or in this case, co-applicants and co-owners ) must be engaged directly or indirectly in a commercial activity compatible with the claimed products or services will still apply.
