The Council recognizes that as participation in international investment and technology transfer becomes more competitive around the world, it is critical that both industry and government collaborate to ensure that Brazil becomes a global technology leader. To that end, the Council puts forth the following agenda:
- Seek nondiscriminatory protection of IP rights in Brazil, including complying with commitments established in the TRIPS Agreement.
- Pass legislation in Brazil that establishes firm penalties for counterfeiting and piracy.
- Advocate for an expanded version of the U.S.-Brazil Patent Prosecution Highway Agreement.
