Trademark Protection at the Border

Are you concerned about imported products that are illegally using your federally registered “®“ trademark? If so, you can buy yourself some cheap protection from the U.S. Customs & Border Protection (“CBP”). CBP has an intellectual property rights protection program under which you can register your registered trademark for a nominal fee on a CBP data base. The registration form includes information concerning persons who are authorized to ship products into the U.S. that are marked with your trademark. CBP will seize any unauthorized shipments of goods that are marked with your trademark.
