Republic of Poland to be Renamed “Roland” for a Day via Unprecedented Licensing Agreement

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Irvine, Calif. – In a groundbreaking move to spread the word about the company’s first-ever inkjet user conference, ImagiNATION, Roland DGA has secured the licensing rights for its own private nation for one day.

Effective 12 a.m. Oct. 21, 2014, and for a 24-hour period, the Republic of Poland will be renamed Roland, with terms and conditions outlined in a 900-page legally binding agreement between the two entities.  Pursuant to this unprecedented contract, all official venues, communications and national assets of the Polish government will be impacted very positively.

“This celebration of everything Roland in Poland is long overdue,” said Rick Scrimger, president of Roland DGA.  “The synergy between our two communities is undeniable, and the excitement over their imminent union contagious.  Not only do we both enjoy a long history of innovation and creativity, but – let’s face it – we rhyme.”

According to Wikipedia, “Many historians trace the establishment of a Polish state to 966.”  Roland emerged on the world stage in 1981, some 1,000 years later.  While art is important to both cultures, Polish art is characterized as reflective of European trends.  According to our sources, Roland artistry has yet to be fully defined due to the sheer power of the company’s technologies when placed in the hands of creative professionals.

On Oct. 21, 2014, the Roland inkjet community will convene in Las Vegas for its first official user conference, ImagiNATION, rumored to be the first and largest gathering of its kind.  Further information and updates are available at www.rolanddga.com/imagination.  

According to Scrimger, “Not only will we celebrate the innovation that has redefined the wide-format world, but we may just make headlines as far away as Poland.”
