Objective:

This one-hour webinar will provide Toy Association members with information on how they can work with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to ensure their trademarks and copyrights are enforced at all U.S. ports of entry.

Who Should Attend:

All Toy Association member companies are invited to attend. The session is specifically recommended for those who work on brand protection and intellectual property infringement issues for their companies.

What You Will Learn:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has the authority to detain, seize, forfeit, and ultimately destroy merchandise seeking entry into the U.S. if it bears an infringing trademark or copyright that has been registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or the U.S. Copyright Office (USCOP), and has subsequently been recorded with CBP. As an intellectual property rights (IPR) owner, you can partner with CBP to receive border enforcement of your registered trademarks and copyrights through CBP’s e-Recordation Program. In this webinar, you will learn more about this program and other steps IPR owners can take to ensure their trademarks and copyrights are enforced at all U.S. ports of entry.
