SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, September 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Appiphany Technologies (OTC: APHD), an IP Risk Control Company that provides private enterprise with total, integrated brand protection solutions to prevent revenue loss from counterfeiting, product diversion and gray market activities, is pleased to announce to its shareholders our attendance as a select exhibitor at the 16th Annual "Fraud and Counterfeit in the Imaging Supplies Industry Conference", September 18-20, in San Diego, CA. The event is presented by the Imaging Supplies Coalition (ISC), a non-profit trade association comprised of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of consumable imaging supplies (ribbons, toner, inks, cartridges, etc.) and equipment that have joined together to protect their customers by combating illegal activities in the Imaging Supplies Industry.
The coalition includes the largest companies in the industry globally: they include Brothers International Corp., Canon U.S.A., Epson America Inc., HP, Lexmark International Inc., Samsung Electronics America Inc. and Xerox Corporation.
The ISC estimates about $3.5 billion dollars are lost to counterfeit products world-wide in the imaging supplies industry, since there is a ready supply of empty cartridges as well as components and known processes making "entry", relatively easy for the counterfeiters.
Appiphany CEO, Rob Sargent stated, "Before being invited as an exhibitor to this prestigious industry event, ISC Chairman Allen Westerfield assisted us in presenting a webinar for interested ISC members. We are pleased to be a part of this conference and excited about meeting face-to-face, so many members that we have only conversed with by phone or webinar. This is the kick-off to our conference exhibit/sponsorship and guest speaking tour for 2016/17.
The mission of the ISC is to protect the members' customers from misrepresented products and services by seeking the worldwide protection of intellectual property and related assets of the Imaging Supplies Industry's distributors, suppliers, and manufacturers.
This is accomplished by training and education in counterfeit product identification, methods of product security, techniques for avoiding telemarketing and e-commerce fraud, and by promoting laws and their enforcement.
