PEREIRA, Hilda Maria Salomé  and  VASCONCELLOS, Eduardo Pinheiro Gondim de. Differences in the patent management in Brazilian companies with and without plants abroad. Rev. Adm. (São Paulo) [online]. 2014, vol.49, n.4, pp.625-641. ISSN 0080-2107.

This paper compares the procedures of local Brazilian companies (those which have plants in Brazil only) with those of international Brazilian companies (which have plants in at least two countries) regarding the patent management. Although there are a lot more variables to consider when examining the issue of patents in companies, this study presents and analyzes the results of a qualitative research on the decision to patent innovations, the choice of countries where to patent and the strategic significance of patents to the company.

Keywords : patents; strategy; internationalization of companies; patent management.
