One long fight in court, which took 15 years, has come to an end. Globo and Ana Maria Braga will have to pay compensation of R$45 thousand for one error committed during the “Mais Você” program.

To make matters worse, in addition to getting the author’s name wrong, the broadcaster changed the title of the text when publishing on the program’s blog. The work was titled “Saudades da encoxada na pia”. Globo changed it to “Every man suffers from Paulo Maluf syndrome”.

Ana Maria Braga and Globo had been convicted in the first and second instances, but presented several appeals over the years.

The defense of both argued that they acted in good faith and that they were misled by publications on the internet. “There was no fraud”, they stated, according to information in Rogério Gentile’s column, on UOL.

What the journalist said

Lilian Honda, in turn, told the court that the statement was offensive and that copyright is guaranteed by law.

“Martha Medeiros herself denied being the author of the text”, stated Lilian in the process, highlighting that it is Globo’s obligation confirm authenticity than it conveys.
