Image Protect Announces Upcoming Launch of World’s Largest Digital Image Monetization Platform

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.

Image Protect Partners with MadHive To Monetize IPShare™ in $105B Ad-Tech Space

San Clemente, CA –  March 14, 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 that it has formed a strategic partnership with MadHive (madhive.com), a leading blockchain-driven data management platform in the ad-tech marketplace that served over 3 billion ad impressions in 2018. The partnership is predicated on the objective of exploring, defining, and deploying a monetization strategy for the Company’s powerful IPShare™ technology as a programmatic digital advertising model.

 

“We believe the future of technology is decentralized,” said Adam Helfgott, CEO of MadHive. “We are building the ‘pipes’ for a decentralized ad network, and Image Protect is building something special within our network.”

 

According to recent MAGNA Group research, the advertising industry hit a record $552 billion in global sales in 2018, which represents an increase of 7.2% on a year-over-year basis. Digital advertising accounts for 35% of the overall market. But consumer research suggests this share could increase dramatically over coming years, with blockchain technology representing a powerful avenue for this transition. According to research from Zenith, “Digital is driving virtually all growth in the global ad market.”

 

Management notes that MadHive has a proven track record in leveraging blockchain technology for the authentication of “true value transactions” in the ad-tech ecosystem without sacrificing either transparency or efficiency. The Company believes that this will help to establish a clear path to monetizing the IPShare™ model given the accuracy and exchange efficiency of both ad impressions and data analytics within the MadHive platform.

 

“We are currently testing 2.5 million images, including the monetization of dormant images,” noted Matthew Goldman, Image Protect CO-CEO. “Once testing has been completed, MadHive will collaborate with digital advertising agencies to utilize these images as digital billboards.”

 

Management believes that its IPShare™ model will deliver an empowering AD-Technology solution to mainstream digital image rightsholders and content creators, leveraging the power of to manage digital licenses, in-photo advertisements, and revolutionary user analytics for tracking, protecting, and monetizing the digital life of proprietary content.

 

Encouraging rightsholders to join the Image Protect platform has been easier than ever – which is exciting, because it means the past four years of hard work is finally starting to pay off . “IPShare™ is changing the way people can market online. Pictures converted to the IPShare™ format can be embedded with advertisements – think YouTube and Facebook ads, but in picture format. Content owners immediately see the value and are thrilled to become a part of the Image Protect team.”

 

The Company encourages all current shareholders and interested parties to visit the Image Protect website today (imageprotect.com) to learn more about the innovative  IPShare™ platform and how it can be used to put the power back in the hands of content owners.

 

About IPShare
Image Protect finds millions of editorial websites using their client’s photos. As an option to the standard DMCA takedown notice, IPShare™ generates a block of code that allows photos to be copied and pasted into any website – similar to code references on sites that embed Youtube or Vimeo content. It’s as simple as copying and pasting the embed code into the user’s website template, i.e., WordPress, Blogger, SquareSpace, Wix, etc. The image is then instantly transformed into an online billboard, containing in-image advertising, hot links, social sharing and dynamic messaging. This is turning the traditional Copyright Infringement model into a cooperative relationship for both parties.

Simplified Copyright Registration with the US Copyright Office

Image Protect has simplified the application process with the US Copyright Office.  We help administer the registration by completing all of the correct forms with the correct information and submitting the completed forms with images for registration. Once this process is completed, Image Protect notifies the rights owner by email that their registration has been submitted and received by the U.S. Copyright Office. This date becomes the registration date for their work. Once the registration has been approved, the US Copyright Office will physically mail the Certificate of Registration directly to them at the address they provide.

 

IPTrack™ Global Internet Image Monitoring

Image Protect has built a sophisticated image recognition and web crawler, which quickly and accurately searches by image and metadata to find where that image appears online.  We are experts in computer vision, pattern recognition, and machine learning.  After uploading an image, our crawler automatically and continually crawls the Internet.  The software then filters, categorizes, and gathers all relevant evidence from all websites found using client’s images.  Clients mark the new findings as licensed, unauthorized or can exclude domains from further searches.

 

Standard DMCA Takedowns

Any owner of content has the right to process a takedown notice against a website owner and/or an Online Service Provider (e.g. ISP, hosting company etc.) if the content owner’s property is found online without their permission. For non-commercial infringements, Image Protect has developed an automated system to send DMCA takedown notices directly to Online Service Providers.  Once the unauthorized content has been removed the case is closed and they will receive no further notices.

 

IPShare™ Image Replacement 

As an option to the Standard DMCA Takedown notice, Image Protect has developed an interactive online image format with in-image advertising, hot links, social sharing and dynamic messaging – IPShare™.  This new model allows us to sell in-image advertising, which we share a portion of the proceeds to the creator.  The model works similar to the DMCA Takedown notice, but instead of requesting a removal of the content, we ask to replace the image with our proprietary embed code image.  It is a win-win for all parties, the creator enjoys revenue from converted from CPM and CPC models, and the website/blog owner enjoys the use of the image without fees or penalties.

 

Post Usage Licensing

When an image is matched by our software and verified to be unlicensed by the website owner, a post usage license is created.  This gives the infringer the opportunity to purchase a proper license, rather than facing a federal copyright lawsuit.  Post usage licensing fees are typically 2x the original license fee, or an average of $1000. If the infringer does not accept the post-licensing fee, the case is transferred to an attorney in the country of the infringement to pursue a settlement within the courts.

 

Real-time Image Analytics

Using Big Data processing of millions of IP objects with hundreds of different attributes, we provide full-scale analysis for our registered users. We also track IPShare™ impressions, click-through traffic, social media shares, and related geographic and demographic data.

 

Take control of your images and unlock your revenue potential

 

 

 

 

IPShare™ Image Replacement 

Image Protect has developed a theft proof online image format with in-image advertising, hot links, social sharing and dynamic messaging – IPShare™.  As an option to the standard DMCA takedown, the image is replaced on the publisher’s website with an embeddable, trackable and secure image.
