This chapter takes a look at the problems associated with patent development within developing countries, specifically Brazil and India. The first half of the chapter discusses the patent regime in India, including the Ayyangar Report, which analyzes the adaptability of foreign patent regimes and policy options to address the national issues of the country, and the process patent regime of the 1970s, where the processes and methods of producing food, medical, and chemical invention products were protected. The second half of the chapter focuses on Brazil's constitutional commitment to access to medicines and its patent law. A section on the similarities between these two countries concludes the chapter.

Keywords:   patent development, problems, Brazil, India, Ayyangar Report, process patent regime, access to medicines, patent law
