Welcome to the Intellectual Property Rights e-Recordation (IPRR) application.
e-Recordation (IPRR)
The filing of this electronic application will begin the administrative recordation process with CBP. A separate application is required for each recordation sought. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. The recordation fee for copyrights is $190. The recordation fee for trademarks is $190 per International Class of goods.
We recommend that you have the following materials and information readily available before you begin the application process:
  • U.S. Patent & Trademark Office Registration Number or the U.S. Copyright Office Registration Number
  • Digital images of the protected mark/work in ".jpg," ".gif" or ".pdf" format that accurately depict the right to be protected. Individual image files are limited to 2MB.

FORM OF PAYMENT The recordation fee may be made either by credit card or check. Please be advised that applications paid for by check could be delayed up to six weeks.
