The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) keeps foreign pirated and counterfeit goods from being imported into the United States. Once a company has registered its trademark or copyright, it should record its registration with CBP. Contact: (202) 325-0020, firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit us here.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection: Holders of registered trademarks and copyrights concerned about imports or exports of infringing goods should record their trademarks and copyrights with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Patents may not be recorded with CBP for border enforcement protection; however, patent owners may be entitled to exclusion of infringing imports from the commerce of the United States under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930.
Detailed information about recording intellectual property rights and reporting intellectual property infringement to CBP can be found on the CBP’s Web site. CBP receives allegations of illegal importation through its online e-allegations website. Applications to record registered trademarks or copyrights must be submitted electronically here.
