Canon and Static Control Components, Inc. have filed a consent, concluding the initial complaint filed with the courts and the ITC in March 2021.
In March 2021, Canon lawyers filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission against 26 manufacturers, distributors and sellers of toner supply containers. Canon alleges the 26 companies sell products that infringe one of more of their patents that relate to the Canon imageRUNNER series of copiers.
Canon asserted the following patents have been infringed: 8,565,649; 9,354,551; 9,753,402; 10,209,667; 10,289,060; 10,289,061; 10,295,957; 10,488,814; 10,496,032; 10,496,033; 10,514,654; 10,520,881; and 10,520,882.
The patents relate to the Canon imageRUNNER copier series and the following toner supply containers: GPR-51, GPR-52, GPR-53, GPR-53/GPR-53L, GPR-55/GPR-55L, GPR-57, GPR-58 and GPR-62.
In the consent judgement Static agrees to refrain from any activities regarding the products of “making, using, selling, or offering for sale in the United States, or importing into the United States, during the remaining term of the Asserted Patents”.
Both parties agreed to pay their own costs and attorney fees and “Upon entry of this Consent Judgment, this action is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE, provided, however, that this Court shall retain jurisdiction to enforce the terms and provisions of this Consent Judgment.”
