(Feb 08, 2008) On October 23, 2007, the Director-General of the Brazilian National Press, Fernando Tolentino de Sousa Vieira, issued Administrative Act (Portaria) No. 275 establishing the commercialization of official gazettes and their electronic versions. In response, the national president of the Brazilian Bar Association, Cezar Britto, sent a letter to Vieira requesting the immediate revocation of the Act, based on a decision of the National Council of Justice determining that "the charging of any subscription fee by the tribunals might restrict the publicity of the acts, which must be given broad visibility."
