Zero Tolerance for Counterfeiters – Berto does time
Counterfeit imaging supplies such as printer cartridges, toners and ribbons are a threat to legitimate business and consumers. Such piracy is also accompanied by deliberate cheating of the consumer as to the quality they are entitled to expect. The Imaging Supplies Coalition (ISC) was established by OEMs that include HP Inc., Lexmark International, and Xerox over 20 years ago. The ISC states that the annual global market value for counterfeit printer supplies is about $3.5 billion—a huge hit to the bottom lines of printer companies. This equates to more than five percent of the total market value.
Those who deal with the manufacture, distribution, marketing, packaging and sale of counterfeit good are jailed in most countries.
