The patent office of Venezuela is the Servicio Autonomo de Propiedad Intelectual.

Patent office case law

According to a pro-free-software Venezuelan blogger, the patent office of Venezuela doesn't grant software patents.[1] He also mentions that the patent office's computer systems run GNU/Linux, which is usually a positive sign.


Patents are granted based on the law "Ley. Art. 5 LPI.". The definition of patentable subject matter is in "Art.14. LPI" and exceptions to patentability are noted in "Art. 15".[2] Possibly also of interest: Art. 22. LPI.

Can you help? anyone know where we can link to an online copy of these laws?
