Is IMTL the Next Big Thing in the Cloud Space?

Date : March 18, 2019

New Opportunity:  Image Protect Inc. (OTCMKTS:IMTL)

 

Cloud technology is perhaps the hottest stock market theme on the planet right now. The basic premise is that connected systems allow companies to take advantage of extensive synergies leveraging the existing digital fiber optic infrastructure to increase margins on invested capital.

 

This can take many forms. One of the most interesting and possibly undervalued emerging opportunities in the space right now is Image Protect (IMTL), a company that has pivoted into a cloud solution for digital image copyright infringement protection through the use of in-image advertising revenues shared between the rightsholder and IMTL.

 

We find this system extremely interesting and see some compelling technicals now showing up on the charts.

Who is IMTL

Who is IMTL

 

Image Protect Inc. (OTCMKTS:IMTL) protects and monetizes creative works. By uniting technology with a team of copyright experts, it ensures that content providers preserve the value of their digital assets. Its web application monitors the global Internet to seek and collect evidence for illegally used visual content. Then the company’s legal partners across North America, Europe, and Asia ensure its clients receive appropriate compensation for work used without valid license.

 

Image Protect, Inc. focuses on building a community of visual artists to help defend against copyright infringement. Its tracking and recovery technology simplifies copyright protection by combining industry-leading software with a platform of visual artists and copyright experts.

 

The company’s Web application monitors the global Internet to seek and collect evidence for illegally used visual content; and its legal partners in North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania ensure that clients receive appropriate compensation and recovering settlement fees when their work has been used without a valid license. The company was founded in 2014 and is based in San Clemente, California.

 

Image Protect’s main asset at this point is its IPShare model, which uses in-image advertisements and tracking to monetize digital images to compensate rightsholders for use of images around the internet.

 

Image Protect finds millions of editorial websites using their client’s photos. As an option to the standard DMCA takedown notice, IPShare™ generates a block of code that allows photos to be copied and pasted into any website – similar to code references on sites that embed Youtube or Vimeo content. It’s as simple as copying and pasting the embed code into the user’s website template, i.e., WordPress, Blogger, SquareSpace, Wix, etc. The image is then instantly transformed into an online billboard, containing in-image advertising, hot links, social sharing and dynamic messaging. This is turning the traditional Copyright Infringement model into a cooperative relationship for both parties.

Recent Catalysts

The company most recently announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with MadHive (madhive.com), a leading blockchain-driven data management platform in the ad-tech marketplace that served over 3 billion ad impressions in 2018.

 

This could be huge. According to the release, the partnership is predicated on the objective of exploring, defining, and deploying a monetization strategy for the Company’s powerful IPShare™ technology as a programmatic digital advertising model.

 

“We are currently testing 2.5 million images, including the monetization of dormant images,” noted Matthew Goldman, Image Protect CO-CEO. “Once testing has been completed, MadHive will collaborate with digital advertising agencies to utilize these images as digital billboards.”

Just before that, the company announced that it has begun to on-board world famous celebrity photographer, Idris Erba (idriserba.com) as a partner and client. Mr. Erba’s exclusive A-list celebrity clientele portfolio includes Jamie Foxx, Floyd Mayweather, and Cristiano Ronaldo, among others.

According to the release, “Management notes that idriserba.com generates millions of hits annually due to the high-profile subjects depicted and the renowned quality of Mr. Erba’s visual art. The IPShare App is designed and built to monetize such a site by way of In-Image advertising, a rapidly growing Ad sector that is estimated at over $50 billion in total size.”

Technical Analysis

IMTL shares have been forging a key basing pattern over recent months as interest in the stock picks up according to relative volume measures. We also see a bullish oscillator divergence in place which could help to catalyze some constructive action ahead.

 

A breakout back above the $0.015 area would be particularly encouraging.
