Overview of This Information Collection Title: Regulations Relating to Recordation and Enforcement of Trademark and Copyrights (Part 133 of the CBP Regulations). OMB Number: 1651–0123. Abstract: Title 19 of the United States Code section 1526(e) prohibits the importation of articles that bear a counterfeit mark of a trademark that is registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and recorded with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Pursuant to 15 U.S.C. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:28 May 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 1124, the importation of articles that copy or simulate the trade name of a manufacturer or trader, or copy or simulate a trademark registered with the USPTO and recorded with CBP is prohibited. Likewise, under 17 U.S.C. 602 and 17 U.S.C. 603, the importation of articles that constitute an infringement of copyright in protected copyrighted works is prohibited. Both 15 U.S.C. 1124 and 17 U.S.C. 602, authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to prescribe by regulation for the recordation of trademarks, trade names and copyrights with CBP. Additional rulemaking authority in this regard is conferred by CBP’s general rulemaking authority as found in 19 U.S.C. 1624. CBP officers enforce these intellectual property rights at the border. The information that respondents must submit in order to seek the assistance of CBP to protect against infringing imports is specified for trademarks under 19 CFR 133.2 and 133.3, and the information to be submitted for copyrights is specified under 19 CFR 133.32 and 133.33. Trademark, trade name, and copyright owners seeking border enforcement of their intellectual property rights provide information through the recordation process in order to assist CBP officers in identifying violating articles at the border. Respondents may submit this information through the IPR e-Recordation website at https:// iprr.cbp.gov/. Collection Revisions On December 15, 2017 CBP published a Final Rule in the Federal Register (82 FR 59511) regarding Donations of Technology and Related Support Services to Enforce Intellectual Property Rights. 19 CFR 133.61 Subpart H has been added which authorizes CBP to receive and accept donations of hardware, software, equipment, and similar technologies, as well as training and related support service, for the purpose of assisting CBP in enforcing IPR. CBP is revising this collection of information to include IPR Donations. A donation offer must be submitted to CBP either via email, to dap@cbp.dhs.gov, or mailed to the attention of the Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations, or his/her designee. The donation offer must describe the proposed donation in sufficient detail to enable CBP to determine its compatibility with existing CBP technologies, networks, and facilities (e.g. operating system or similar requirements, power supply requirements, item size and weight, etc.). The donation offer must also include information pertaining to the PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 donation’s scope, purpose, expected benefits, intended use, costs, and attached conditions, as applicable, that is sufficient to enable CBP to evaluate the donation and make a determination as to whether to accept it. CBP will notify the donor, in writing, if additional information is requested or if CBP has determined that it will not accept the donation. If CBP accepts a donation, CBP will enter into a signed, written agreement with an authorized representative of the donor. The agreement must contain all applicable terms and conditions of the donation. Current Actions: CBP proposes to revise and extend the expiration date of this information collection with a change to the burden hours and the information collected. Type of Review: Revision with change. Affected Public: Businesses and Individuals. IPR Recordation Application: Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,000. Estimated Number of Annual Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 2,000. Estimated Time per Respondent: 2 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 4,000.
