4th Anniversary of IP PI

Dear IP PI Blog Reader:

I hope this message finds you and yours healthy and safe.

With your permission, I just want to take a moment to announce that today is the “Fourth Anniversary” of the launching of, and thank you for your continued interest and support.

To date I have published over 120 posts on a broad range of global IP investigation and protection issues.

It has been gratifying to see that over 740 IP professionals (i.e., IP attorneys, general counsels, law enforcement and private investigators, and brand protection specialists), as well as others interested in the fight against IP theft have subscribed.

As we have all witnessed during this COVID-19 pandemic, IP theft and infringement / bad actors have not taken a break. In fact, they have discovered more ways to steal. Well, we’re adapting too, and discovering more and more ways to fight back.

I will continue to publish 2-3 posts each month with a sustained focus on IP Investigations and Protection news and strategies, in addition to posting a daily IP Protection / Infringement news report in the blog’s sidebar.

IP PI will continue to fight the good fight in an effort to keep you informed.

Thank you again and please stay safe.
