Brazil has confirmed it will use a victory against the United States over cotton subsidies in the World Trade Organization to demand pay-back in other areas. "Brazil will make use of this power to demand compensation in the areas of goods and intellectual property," the head of the foreign ministry's economic department, Roberto Carvalho de Azevedo said. The WTO on Monday rejected a US appeal against a December decision that found the United States had breached trade rules over its subsidies for cotton farmers, putting Brazilian producers at a serious disadvantage.
