Civil Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy Banner

The IPR Center is now offering rights holders a uniform way to respond to domain names subject to civil seizures, injunction, and other equitable relief granted by a court in the United States. The Civil Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy banner can be used to deter consumers or users from accessing websites used to infringe IPR and offers a standardized way to redirect traffic away from such websites.The Banner also clearly signals that the private industry and the the U.S. Government will not tolerate IP infringement. This informational banner provides an opportunity for the public to report potential IPR violations and also serves as a method for educating the public about IP theft. To use and place the officialCivil Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy banner on a website, please contact the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Coordination Center for permission and assistance.
