The Brazilian Association of Intellectual Property (ABPI) is organizing the 43rd International Congress from 20 to 22 August 2023 in Brazil’s beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro.

The year’s theme is ‘IP as a Promoter of Social Equality’. The programme includes artificial intelligence and challenges for copyright, the protection of famous marks, the liability of internet service providers, anti-piracy strategies, the Hague Agreement in Brazil and innovation policies, among others.

CEO of the International Trademark Association (INTA), Etienne Sanz de Acedo, is confirmed for the event’s closing plenary. He will participate in the session ‘Intellectual Property of the Future’ along with Kathi Vidal (United States Patent and Trademark Office), Sherif Saadallah (World Intellectual Property Organization), Gabriel Leonardos (president of ABPI), and Luiz Henrique do Amaral (Dannemann Siemsen).
