Let the Lyra Supplies Forum begin!

It's early morning in Las Vegas, and as the outside temps begin their daily march to triple digits, I will be inside in the AC, blogging from The Lyra Supplies Forum 2008: Challenges and Opportunities in Digital Imaging Consumables Markets.

On the agenda for today:

Industry News and Trends from The Hard Copy Supplies Journal, Charles Brewer, Managing Editor, The Hard Copy Supplies Journal

Making Sense of a Complex Ink Jet Cartridge Market: Examining Worldwide Product Mix Trends, Andrew Lippman, Industry Analyst & Program Manager for Ink Jet Supplies, Lyra Research

The Impact of Color and New Technologies in Remanufacturing Businesses, Steve Weedon, CEO, Static Control European Operations, and Executive Vice President, Static Control Components, Inc.

Laying Down the Law: Legal Issues and the Aftermarket,Tricia Judge, Executive Director, International Imaging Technology Council
It’s been a banner year for lawyers in the imaging supplies aftermarket. The Supreme Court decision in Quanta Computer v. LG Electronics could change the way the OEMs control the supply chain. And, Epson’s efforts to exclude competing imports may have some unforeseen consequences. Also, patent reform is rampant among Supreme Court decisions, at the USPTO and even in Congress. What could all this mean in terms of opportunities and challenges for the imaging supplies industry? Ms. Judge will discuss these opportunities and challenges.
Valuing Aftermarket Businesses, Dan Brinker, President & CEO, American TonerServ

Printer & MFP Toner Cartridges: Examining Worldwide Usage Trends, Cortney Kasuba, Industry Analyst & Program Manager for Laser Consumables, Lyra Research
