5th Anniversary of IP Probe Blog

Dear IP Probe – 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 “Fifth Anniversary” of the launching of IP Probe Blog And thank you for your continued interest and support.

To date, I have published over 150 posts on a broad range of global IP investigation and protection issues.

It has been gratifying to see that over 873 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, besides posting a daily IP Protection / Infringement news report in the blog’s sidebar.

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

Thank you again for your support.
