Image Protect Invited to Speak on Key Panel at Upcoming 2017 DMLA Conference

Company COO Featured as Expert on Need for More Action to Protect Digital IP

SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2017) - Image Protect Inc. (OTC: IMTL) (imageprotect.com), the global leader in end-to-end copyright software, is proud to announce its Chief Operating Officer, Jonathan Thomas, has been selected as a panelist at the upcoming Digital Media Licensing Association Conference in New York Oct.22-24.

Mr. Thomas will be joined by Mathew Higbee of Higbee & Associates to discuss the topic of "Found Money." The discussion will be focused on the real costs of Copyright infringement, the limitations of Education as an effective countermeasure, and the importance of enforcing Copyright laws.

This is a critical topic in today's world. According to a 2014 Yahoo report, people are uploading more than 880 billion images per year. And that number is surely even higher today. The Company's internal data suggest that professional images may appear an average of nearly 13 times each across the internet, largely without license or payment. For those seeking to monetize creative work, this is an enormous barrier to fair market conditions, and may be a major opportunity for companies like Image Protect, who are dedicated to the project of providing individuals and businesses with a toolset to fight back, and to protect their intellectual property.

Mr. Thomas, Company COO, stated, "I am honored to be a panelist focused on the most important issue affecting photographers and publishers' livelihood." Thomas continued, "I look forward to discussing the use of technology to deter image piracy and theft, now and into the future."
