WHAT IS TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER?
It is the transfer of rights — by means of licenses or other kinds of contracts/agreements with third parties — in your trademarks, patents, industrial designs and other creations/technologies not covered by the industrial property law.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF TRANSFERRING THESE RIGHTS?
It can improve the viability of and leverage businesses. The transfer of rights through contracts/agreements allows businesses to be properly conducted and leveraged, granting validity against third parties.
HOW A TRANSFER CAN BE MADE?
A contract or an agreement has to be prepared and, depending on its nature, registered with the INPI [Brazilian Patents & Trademarks Office]. Other kinds of procedures may also be required, as the case may be.
