After a decade of scams and cheats it’s time for change from the Chinese authorities and their trade publication RTMworld.com.
It’s easy to support something from afar and act like you are part of a good cause, but if you are deep into a corrupt industry, then at some point you need to be serious and try to change things for the better, especially if you are trying to be an honest news agency that represent their fellow constituents. David Gibbons of RTMworld.com talks and acts like he really cares about change and wants to stamp out cheats and scams, but to date he’s done absolutely nothing about it in China. David Gibbons ‘knows where all the bodies are buried’ (figure of speech) especially those who wrongfully label their packaging, wrongfully use the SMTC label, wrongfully use harmful toxins in their cartridges to produce a cheaper product’, but so far David is all talk no action. Frankly, there are so many scams coming from China in our industry that it’s time for the Chinese Gov. to intervene and do something about it! We here in the west are all-in, in cleaning up China’s dirty toner industry, we have tens of thousands of Amazon product take downs, hundreds of lawsuits in the books, multiple global raids of busted counterfeiters, and now even US elected officials are involved, and we are still exposing NEW scams coming from China every day.
There is so much hard work going on to stop this bogus Chinese cartel in the west that it’s surprising to find out that to date nothing has ever been done about it in China. Even China’s big Ninestar through their Ink-Tank divison was busted in 2021 for slave laboring employees (download) and nothing was done about it. And if Ninestar’s Zhuhai National Resources & Jingjie Printing Technology co. ltd also known as Ink-tank brand can get away with it, then all the others in the cartel are surely easily abusing employees among other ongoing crimes and scams.
David Gibbons of RTMworld.com is all talk no action. (See his letter below)
This coming week China’s RTMWorld.com is holding its annual Remax trade show, from November 3rd through the 5th, 2022. 100% of these companies in this trade show have never been authorized to resell HP, Brother, Canon, Epson toner and ink products, but they do anyway. We are hoping that the Chinese authorities will be paying attention and raid dishonest businesses and shut them down once and for all. It would also be nice to see David Gibbons of RTMworld.com to name, names and shame these companies that constantly scam, since he’s apparently so concerned and since this was his idea. Come on Dave, clean up your industry ………
Clones, counterfeits and compatibles.
Hi, It still blows me away to read the misleading news sprouted by some industry media, mainly in the US, that any compatible cartridge product produced by the aftermarket—particularly in China—is a clone, a copycat or counterfeit.
I’m not buying it. Are you? The team at China-based Ninestar called me just today, to share the news that after diligently checking their compatible cartridges for use in Brother printers, the US Customs and Border authorities found Ninestar’s cartridges do not infringe Brother’s patents. Nor do they infringe on the USITC General Exclusion Order. So, they can freely enter the US and be marketed and sold there.
The US authorities apply greater scrutiny on aftermarket products than anywhere else on the planet. The design-around technologies used by Ninestar in this case, have eliminated the need for the gears and electrodes included in the patents. So, they are not clones!
Nor are the cartridges labelled and packaged into boxes that would fool the consumer into thinking they are the OEM genuine article. They are obviously aftermarket compatibles. So, they are not counterfeit either.
On the other hand, my good friend Tricia Judge is on the warpath to stamp out the cheaters: those who wrongfully label their packaging, wrongfully use the SMTC label, wrongfully use harmful toxins in their cartridges to produce a cheaper product. Yes. Let’s join Tricia to see these horrible products removed from the market. The manufacturers should be publicly named and shamed. I support her. David Gibbons <email@example.com>
