Green patents: fast track examination extended until 2016
November 10, 2017

On April 17, 2012, the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BRPTO) implemented a fast track procedure for applications covering green technologies. Since its beginning, the program has proven to be a good alternative against the BRPTO’s backlog. The average time for the BRPTO to grant a final decision is currently about 10 years. On the other hand, if the application goes through the fast track examination procedure it will be decided in about one year. The third phase of the program will end on April 16, 2015. In light of this, the BRPTO has announced that the program will enter its fourth phase, ending on April 16, 2016. To be eligible for the green fast track procedure, applications for utility model and invention must have not previously been examined and must have no more than 15 claims, of which three must be independent.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
