Because OpenOffice.org is called BrOffice.org in Brazil?
At the end of 2004 due to problems with the make Open Office,
previously registered by a company in Rio de Janeiro, it was necessary
to change the community name and the product. Thus, the project led to
the project OpenOffice.org.br BrOffice.org.

On January 25, 2006, was officially announced the launch of the NGO
BrOffice.org now organize community activities OpenOffice.org.br.
Despite the change of name, BrOffice.org continued representing the
international OpenOffice.org project, with the guarantee of all legal
instruments to protect brand BrOffice.org.
