USPTO Launches Site for Small Business
Report IP Theft
The first step in protecting your business from IP theft is to protect your IP - both in the United States and in other countries where you do business and source products. The STOP! hotline provides a one-stop-shop for businesses to protect their intellectual property at home and abroad. Callers on the hotline (1-866-999-HALT) receive information from USPTO IP attorneys with regional expertise on how to protect and enforce patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets in domestic and overseas markets.
