The STOP! Fakes Hotline: 1-866-999-HALT

The STOP! Hotline is a one-stop-shop to help businesses protect their intellectual property at home and abroad. Call them at 1-800-999-4258 if you need information to leverage the resources of the U.S. government to secure and enforce your trademarks, patents and copyrights overseas.

Growing global trade in pirated and counterfeit goods threatens America's innovation economy, the competitiveness of our leading companies and small manufacturers, and the livelihoods of their workers. To help combat this growing problem, the Strategy Targeting Organized Piracy (STOP!) was developed "to smash the criminal networks that traffic counterfeit and pirated goods, stop trade in these goods at America's borders, block these goods around the world, and help small businesses secure and enforce their rights overseas."

As a part of the STOP! initiative, a hotline has been established that provides a one-stop-shop for businesses to protect their intellectual property at home and abroad. 1-866-999-HALT gives businesses the information they need to leverage the resources of the U.S. Government to lock down and enforce their trademarks, patents and copyrights overseas, both in individual countries and in multiple countries through international treaties.
