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. 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

officers in identifying violating articles at the border. Respondents 
may submit this information through the IPR e-Recordation website at

pertaining to the 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

determined that it will not accept the donation. If CBP accepts a 
donation, CBP will enter into a signed, written agreement with an
