After Brazil ratified the Madrid Protocol, the registration of Trade marks at the Instituto Nacional da Propriedade (INPI) and the recognition of high renown trade marks has a less strict criterion. In order to become a high renown trade mark in Brazil: after registration, marks have to go through a specific proceeding at INPI, which will get them a declaration of high renown valid for 10 years.

More than 100 renowned trade marks are already benefiting from this unique protection in Brazil.
