The Brazilian PTO has changed the format of the Patent Industrial Property

he Brazilian PTO has changed the format of the Patent Industrial Property Journal (the Official Gazette) in pdf without giving any instructions on how the offices should proceed in relation to the new format. The Brazilian PTO refuses to provide an adjustment period for companies to adapt to its system, although any new format may make it impossible to automate the visualization of images. The non-image format, txt, has not yet been modified.
