Ronaldo Lemos is a Brazilian academic, lawyer and commentator on intellectual property and technology implementation.


Lemos is the director of the Institute for Technology & Society of Rio de Janeiro (, and professor at the Rio de Janeiro State University's Law School. He is also a partner with the law firm Rennó Penteado Advogados[1] and a board member of various organizations, including the Mozilla Foundation,, and Stellar.[2]

He was nominated a visiting professor of Law, Technology and Policy at Columbia University´s School of International Public Affairs in 2017 and 2018.[3]

He was appointed in November 2015 as a fellow by Ashoka, a civil society organization founded by Bill Drayton.[4]

He was selected a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2015. In May 2020 Lemos was selected a member of the Facebook Oversight Board[5]

Lemos was one of the creators of Brazil's National Internet of Things (IoT) plan. The plan was commissioned by Brazil's National Development Bank (BNDES) and the Ministry of Science, Technology, Communications and Innovation (MCTI). The study was developed by Lemos's law firm (PNM Advogados) in partnership with McKinsey & Co and CPQD. Lemos was responsible for drafting the regulatory portion of the study, encompassing telecommunications, taxation, data protection, cybersecurity and other legal issues pertaining to the field of IoT. The study was published in May 2018.[6]


His public image is being an advocate for an open internet. But when the tech corporations like Facebook implement censorship on behalf of the deep state, he dismisses out of hand that the actual censorship happens against "good citizens" while leaving deep state bot networks intact.

Its premise would be that it is individuals (or "good citizens") who create and spread false information. Nothing more incorrect. The issue of fake news is not individual, but industrial. Fake news is a profitable, well-organized and well-funded industry, with command and control, employees and service providers of various natures, including copywriters, programmers, agitators and managers of bot networks and fake profiles. There are people who are part of this industry for political reasons. Others are part of it for money. So much so that the term “fake news” is in itself misleading. The more correct would be “coordinated inauthentic behavior”. This term denotes the characteristic of coordinated organization.....Facebook announced that it will step up its fight against coordinated networks, analyzing sophisticated disinformation-spreading patterns and tactics. For example, it will use cyber-attack investigation tools to map fake news networks as well.[7]
