Intellectual property in Brazil over computer programs that have an inventive character is supported by law, whether registered or not.

The protection conferred by the Software Law is granted to the author for 50 years after the date of publication or creation of the program, counted from January 1 of the following year.

The program owner can claim authorship and oppose any unauthorized modification.


Registration with the INPI – National Institute of Industrial Property can guarantee its ownership and proof of its authorship, with the published evidence of its creation.


Protect your computer programs against piracy due to unfair competition, copying by programmers and users.


The registration acts as an additional security for its holder! So the registration is actually a way of proving the right with the evidence of its creation.
