Report IP Theft

The National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) is the U.S. government's clearinghouse for investigations

into counterfeiting and piracy — crimes that threaten the public's health and safety, the U.S. economy, and our war fighters.


The IPR Center encourages members of the general public, industry, trade associations, law enforcement and government agencies to

report potential violations of intellectual property rights through this website. The information you provide will be reviewed promptly by

IPR Center staff and disseminated for appropriate investigative response and tactical use to IPR Center partners.


Completion of this referral form is voluntary. The IPR Center accepts online complaints from actual victims as well as from third parties

to the victims. While providing your contact information is voluntary, the IPR Center can best process a complaint if it receives accurate

information in the form and has the ability to contact the complainant to clarify information that was provided, when necessary. There

are various resources, such as the IPR Center’s pamphlet Reporting Allegations of Intellectual Property Theft and the Department

of Justice, Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section’s publication Reporting Intellectual Property Crime: A Guide for

Victims of Counterfeiting, Copyright Infringement, and Theft of Trade Secrets that may aid in reporting violations of intellectual

property rights and assist you in completing this form. Please provide as much of the following information as possible to assist us in

investigating the report.
