All of the numbers we sell were issued by the Uniform Code Council (UCC), currently known as GS1, and all of the numbers were issued prior to August 28, 2002.
All of the barcode numbers SpeedyBarcodes.com sells were originally issued by the UCC, known today as GS1, and were issued prior to August 28, 2002. That date is important because that is when GS1 US started sending out renewal notices demanding that past prefix holders pay renewal fees and agree to the new terms and conditions. Eventually, a class action suit was filed against GS1, in the State of Washington, and GS1 lost. All prefix owners prior to August 28, 2002 became discharged from any of GS1's renewal fees and a new codified agreement. The settlement agreement indicates that if a prefix holder paid a membership fee to the UCC prior to August 28, 2002, the prefix holder will be entitled to perpetual membership in the UCC and not be obligated to pay annual renewal fees to the UCC, either now or in the future. Also, the Terms and Conditions of the original ownership agreement with the prefix holder and the UCC was deemed null and void. All of the barcodes sold by SpeedyBarcodes.com are included in the terms and conditions as stated above and therefore, all of our barcodes are legal and legitimate.
George Laurer developed the Universal Product Code (UPC) in 1973 when he was an engineer at IBM. His website, Authenticated UPC Registration Directory, has a list of companies that he has checked out and verified that they are selling legitimate barcode numbers.
