San Clemente, CA – March 19, 2019 – Image Protect Inc. (OTC:IMTL) (imageprotect.com) (“Image Protect” or the “Company”), a global leader in the end-to-end copyright infringement sector, is excited to announce the upcoming launch of its new Fotofy Digital Image Marketplace, which will allow users to capture images free of charge, while allowing revenue participation for image rightsholders in an In-Image advertising network. Geared to become the world’s largest digital image sharing platform, Fotofy will launch in August at fotofy.com.
Fotofy is built on the Company’s revolutionary IPShare technology, which allows sharing and monetization of the Company’s massive image database. Users will be able to access and share images for free, while image rightsholders (owners) will be able to monetize that usage and sharing through the Company’s advanced in-image advertising technology.
Image Protect Co-CEO, Matthew Goldman stated, “After years of playing cops and robbers on a global internet scale, pursuing infringements and protecting the legal rights of copyright holders, we realized that, in a world with a trillion-image sharing marketplace, the return on investment would theoretically skyrocket with a different model – enabling free and full usage and sharing of images with a monetization model built into that sharing process.”
The Fotofy image sharing marketplace will act as a massive library of high quality freely accessible images for use and sharing. Each image will be embedded with code that allows it to act as a carrier of an in-image advertisement. In other words, everybody wins: users find the images they desire, and image rightsholders have the opportunity to profit from a revenue stream as their creative works are circulated throughout the digital universe.
“We were in a unique position to pull this off,” continued Mr. Goldman. “Image Protect has amassed a ton of applied knowledge capital in the digital image industry over many years. We believe we are in a position to establish and ramp Fotofy into the world’s largest digital image sharing platform in a relatively short period. The in-image ad market is expected to top a record $50 billion in revenues in 2020. We believe we will be ideally positioned to capitalize on that growth.”
Management notes that the Company’s goal is to reach one trillion image sharing events across the Fotofy network within two years from launch.
