BRIEFLY

November 19, 1987

Brazil's Senate has approved a law that would restrict imports of computer software programs, a move that could escalate its trade fight with the United States. The legislation would prohibit imports of foreign programs that compete with Brazilian equivalents. The measure goes before the country's House next week, where it is expected to pass. The United States has said it would impose sanctions against Brazilian products in retaliation for that country's restrictive computer policy, which prohibits imports of small or mid-sized computers and some software.
