Did you know that you can and should record your Intellectual Property such as Trademarks and Copyrights with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) using their e-Recordation system? Once you do so, CBP can help prevent the importation and exportation of infringing goods. In fact, you must record your IP with CBP because CBP cannot help you with infringing or counterfeit imports/exports if you don’t! This service is readily available here.
We are expecting changes this year related to Emerging Technologies Export Controls. The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is holding its’ annual conference this week on Export Controls in Washington, D.C. The theme of this year’s conference is “Emerging Technologies, Strategic Trade, and Global Threats”. This event will cover:
Both the ITAR and the EAR regulate Deemed Exports: releasing or otherwise transferring controlled technical data to a foreign person in the United States. So how does this impact hiring foreign nationals to work on ITAR/EAR projects? Hiring foreign nationals presents an opportunity for a deemed export and therefore possible export compliance implications.
Both the EAR and the ITAR regulate Deemed Exports. But what exactly is a Deemed Export and how is it different from a traditional export?
Did you know that The International Traffic in Arms Regulations affects more than just exporters? You may need to register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls even if you do not export.
