Canon announces IP action in UK

Canon announces IP action in UK

July 14, 2014

gavel 2 1810 copyOEM commences a patent infringement action against two UK-based cartridge suppliers concerning the same patent as cases begun across Europe this year.

The patent infringement action announced by Canon is against European Cartridge Warehouse Limited and Printer Supplies Technology Limited, which the OEM claims have both infringed its European patent (UK) number 2 087 407 by importing and selling “certain toner cartridges for use in various models of Hewlett-Packard laser beam printers”. Both of the companies are run by Peter Lui and based in Warrington.

The case relates to the same patent mentioned in cases begun against companies across Europe throughout 2014: including Seine and Aster in the Netherlands; KMP and wta in Germany; and Zephyr SAS and Aster in France.

As a result of the alleged infringement, Canon stated it is “seeking various remedies including an injunction and damages”. It added that “throughout the development, sales and marketing process, Canon respects the intellectual property rights of other companies and individuals and expects others to do the same. Canon remains committed to taking legal action against anyone who does not respect Canon’s intellectual property rights”.

The patent infringement action is to be commenced in the High Court of Justice of England and Wales.

The Recycler is contacting European Cartridge Warehouse Limited and Printer Supplies Technology Limited for a comment.
