Following reports of product removals requested by Canon Inc. last month, the OEM has now announced the filing of a new Report Infringement Form with Amazon UK.
According to the OEM, this report infringement is based on the alleged use of claim 1 and 25 of the UK portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 2 087 407 regarding the cartridge model “CF280A” offered by Litpol Ltd.
These products are sold under the ASINs (Amazon Standard Identification Number) B0793RCR24, B0793P6DH8, B0793PQGYQ, B079346BC1, and B0793Q3MN9.
Following the filing of the form, Amazon took down the respective products. These products are compatible with the OEM HP cartridge model CF280A and provide a non-OEM coupling member, a non-OEM drum as well as a non-OEM housing.
Filing a Report Infringement Form with Amazon is a service offered by Amazon and does not comprise any official finding of validity or infringement of a patent. The decision to take down a product is in the discretion of Amazon and is based on information provided by Canon.
As Canon explains, Amazon may inform the vendor about the takedown request and the vendor may object to it.
