Brother Industries. Ltd., has introduced an innovative holographic security label*1 replacing the current holographic security label that gives customers the ability to identify genuine Brother Consumables at the point of purchase – before they buy. The label is introduced for ink cartridges, toner cartridges and drum units for Brother Printers and All-in-Ones – the production started in September and all cartons will carry the new labels in the months to come while the current stocks are sold out in the market.
Along with the continued, aggressive legal action against counterfeiters, the new security label is critical to the Brother Group’s active approach to combating the availability of inferior counterfeit Brother Consumables.
Until now, there was no practical method for customers to distinguish between high-quality, genuine Brother Consumables and inferior, trademark-infringing counterfeits prior to their purchase.
