Dear Subscriber:

Just a brief note to let you know that I have changed the blog’s name from “IP PI” to “IP PROBE.”

At the start of writing this blog over five years ago, it initially focused on what private investigators (PIs) would find helpful in being of service to the IP community.

The blog has evolved to more broadly include content that benefits the global IP protection community, i.e., law enforcement, IP attorneys, general counsels, government officials, etc.

(To date, over 850 IP professionals from around the world have subscribed to the blog.)

Because of this change, the new domain is IPProbe.Global.

I believe the name “IP PROBE” more accurately captures the depth of the IP investigative and enforcement challenges we are facing today.

Especially when we consider the exponential theft of IP through cyber-espionage and by other means.

No action is necessary to continue receiving the posts.

Thank you for your continued support and stay safe.
