The Int'l Imaging Technology Council has an opportunity for you. We are excited to announce a new opportunity for you to help influence the future of the remanufacturing industry. Researchers at the Rochester Institute of Technology Center for Remanufacturing & Resource Recovery, funded by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), are leading an effort to develop a strategic remanufacturing industry roadmap, in which they will identify challenges facing remanufacturing companies today and lay out recommendations for research and policies that will address these challenges across all sectors. The first part of this process is a survey which will help RIT's Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery (CR3) identify the challenges; and it is underway now.

Impression Products to Appeal to the US Supreme Court
Andrew PincusImpression Products will be appealing last month’s federal court decision that favored Lexmark’s practices of controlling its cartridges after the first sale.
