to Prevent Counterfeit Printing Supplies

By Using DuPont(TM) Izon(R) 3D Security Holograms in Combination With the
DuPont(TM) Traceology(TM) eVerification System, Users can Now Easily Validate
the Authenticity of the Brother Supplies They Purchase

WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - DuPont
Authentication, Inc. (DuPont) today announced that it is working with Brother
Industries, Ltd. (Brother) on a global initiative to help protect its laser
and inkjet supplies from illegal counterfeiting. By using DuPont™ Izon® 3D
security holograms in combination with the DuPont™ Traceology™ eVerification
system, users can now easily validate the authenticity of the Brother supplies
they purchase.

"The risks of counterfeit supplies are quite serious for companies like
Brother, that have worked hard to establish quality products in the market and
have a keen interest in protecting their brand, reputation, and above all,
their customers," said Peter Waker, global business director, DuPont
Authentications. "Illegal counterfeit supplies can destroy a printer, plugging
nozzles and producing far fewer or inferior printouts, if they perform at all.
Izon® and Traceology™ can help guard against that."

Brother's anti-counterfeit initiative involves a high-security hologram on
supplies packaging which carries a unique reference number, enabling instant
visual authentication and verification that can be completed online or through
a mobile App, in-store, at home or anywhere.

"DuPont and Brother have collaborated closely to bring together the critical
elements of a strong, global consumer protection program, including easy overt
validation technology, and DuPont™ Traceology™ eVerification to assist our
customers in buying genuine Brother supplies they can rely on," said Takafumi
Kamenouchi, managing executive officer – Brother Industries, Ltd.
