News-Counterfeit-Nov-17

Authenticate. Get What You Deserve.

November 1, 2017

Fraudulent materials put students at risk: when these counterfeit products end up in students’ hands, no safeguard exists to protect them from content that may be incomplete or inaccurate. These pirated, illegal materials also harm the economy and threaten the jobs of hard-working people who deeply care about improving education for every learner. Starting with our copyright 2018 print books, a certification seal featuring a design—unique to each print unit—and a QR code will appear on the cover of each print product. Scanning the QR code will confirm the product comes from Cengage and meets our standards of excellence.

Michael Hansen talks to the Washington Post

November 28, 2016
