SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE - Image Protect Inc. (OTC PINK : IMTL) (imageprotect.com) (“Image Protect” or the “Company”), the global leader in end-to-end copyright software, is excited to announce that the Company has expanded the functionality of its proprietary “IPShare” technology to include two new key functions: Global tracking with an in-image advertising component, and a theft deterrent to prevent copyright infringement.
The technology underlying the IPShare model allows a client to monitor an image from a personalized user-friendly Dashboard, including tracking the image throughout the internet, on social media platforms, and across instances of image sharing. The IPShare Dashboard will allow the Rightsholder to access a steady stream of analytics identifying potential monetization opportunities through “In-image advertising”.
Image Protect CEO, Lawrence Adams, stated, “The Dashboard is your control center. If it's your image, you will have total control over its online fate, which means you can monitor it through our analytics features and monetize it along the way.”
Management believes the IPShare technology represents a virtually theft-proof solution against online image rights infringements by allowing rightsholders to receive financial remuneration through proliferation of the image, rather than depending on a process of after-the-fact enforcement, which is both far less dependable and far more time consuming.
“We are leading the way into a new era of digital rights protection that is predicated on a proactive compensation model. And we have unique proprietary technology that gives us a powerful edge in this $50 billion market,” Mr. Adams continued. “This technology empowers the Celebrity, Influencer, or Brand. It allows the Rightsholder to take control of the image, protecting against infringement and generating potential ad revenue. But it also materially benefits Image Protect shareholders. The Company stands to see significantly increased revenues through monetization of in-image advertising as compared to the revenue potential achievable from a model driven by enforcement of rights through legal action against infringement.”
The Company is in advanced discussions with advertisers as it selects initial participating brands for the coming launch of the IPShare in-image marketplace.
