How is this...

1) we hire a Law Firm.

2) we setup a trust.

3) we establish guidelines for the trust.

Ok...

Working with all suppliers in the industry, ink and toner, finished product...etc.

So for example...

SCC, FG, Uninet, (SEE THIS), (SEE THIS), (SEE THIS)...etc.

Our suppliers charge us a "tax" on all our purchases...lets say 2%. That 2% is transferred to the trust.

So if I buy $100.00 from SCC...I am charged $2.00 more to add to the trust. And if KevDawg spends $1000.00 with FG...he is charged $20.00. This way it is based on your invested interest in the industry.

How this benefits us...

The consumer can always (with a team of lawyers) class action lawsuits the OEM for whatever.

But if the OEMs starts blocking out toner chips, because they "think" they are counterfeit...we have a industry (business owners) class action lawsuits to recoup any damages. Basically protecting ourselves.

Also...once the funds reach a curtain dollar value (5 million)...the OEMs would recognize our strength and think twice.

Would Lexmark have sued SCC...if SCC had $5 million sitting in a fund at their disposal? Or would we have sued Lexmark over their probate cartridge in advance? If we sued and won...it would have set a precedent to the OEM's.

Basically...you want to play ball...we want to play ball...lets go.

Once we reach the dollar value...we would continue paying into the fund, and use the difference to market our industry. Imagine a Super Bowl commercial. Very Happy

Now think...If some supplier were to set this up...how many of us would do business with them.



Have A Great Refill Day!
