The ISC’s 16th conference on fraud and counterfeiting in the imaging supplies industry will provide a clear review of the factors driving this transition and map an approach to protecting brands, customers and reputations during this period of rapid change. The conference will open with a presentation on the pace of technology change and will conclude with the presentations on the change in the IPR environments in Brazil and the PRC. In between will be presentations on brand protection on the internet including the dark web, social media and case studies involving ISC member companies. Every presenter has experience and expertise in showing leaders how to protect their brand. An optional seminar, hosted by Actionable Intelligence will be offered after the conference close.
