IDGLOBAL Provides Solutions to Counterfeit Infections Plaguing the Electronics Industry
(Nanowerk News) IDGLOBAL (Pink Sheets:IDGJ) has developed its Nano-Molecular Markers™ to be easily and seamlessly applied to most electronics components for the purpose of tracking, protecting and controlling counterfeiting infections that are plaguing the electronics industry worldwide at an alarming rate.
IDGLOBAL’s Nano-Molecular Markers™ are applied to pre-selected internal, external or individual components using a proprietary tagging method that in no way affects the workings of the device / component allowing for the item that is marked to be verified as 100% authentic at any stage of the manufacturing process and right up to retail. IDGLOBAL’s Nano-Molecular Markers are applied at the molecular level and cannot be detected, removed or altered by the criminal counterfeiters allowing for 100% authentication of the component in real time, in a matter of seconds using proprietary handheld scanning technologies.
Margaret Peterlin, deputy under secretary of Commerce for intellectual property and deputy director of the sat down with Electronic Business to talk about global counterfeiting. Excerpts of that conversation can be viewed at http://www.edn.com/article/CA6488501.html?text=counterfeit.
In a recent report on Electronic Design, Strategy, News (www.edn.com) Margaret Peterlin commented, ”In 2006, in terms of seizures — which is going to under-account for the real amount because it's what we were able to intercept — 5 percent of the total value seized was consumer electronics. In 2007, it was 9 percent, which is a bad news story for what the bad guys are willing to target. Footwear and apparel are No. 1 and No. 2, followed by pharmaceuticals and then electronics.”
