Canon Inc. this week announced the filing of an infringement report with Amazon.com.
The OEM is seeking removal of Amazon.com listings for certain toner cartridges sold by Etechwork for use in HP laser beam printers.
Canon’s infringement report alleged that certain model CF280A toner cartridges sold by Etechwork via Amazon.com infringed Canon’s U.S. Patent Nos. 8,280,278; 8,630,564; 8,682,215; 8,688,008; and 8,676,090. Canon requested that Amazon remove Etechwork’s listings for those products, namely, Etechwork’s listings with Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (“ASINs”) B06X3YZ141 and B06WRVGXY1.
At the time of this announcement, the Etechwork listings identified above were no longer available on Amazon.com.
Canon’s battle against infringing cartridges has been well-documented in recent years, particularly over the last few months, as the OEM embarked on a spate of lawsuits against over 30 companies, both in the USA and further afield. Some of these cases have already been resolved in Canon’s favour.
