Canon brings IP focus to France

Canon brings IP focus to France

May 29, 2014

The OEM has opened a patent infringement suit against Zephyr SAS/Green Eco and Aster Graphics in France, over the same patent as the Dutch cases announced this year.

Paris' First Instance Court

Paris’ First Instance Court

The OEM announced this morning that it had filed the newest of its patent infringement suits in France at the Paris First Instance Court, with the case taken up against Zephyr SAS (trading as Green Eco) and Aster Graphics, to which it refers to as “the Hong-Kong and Chinese companies that both use the name”.

The case refers to the same European patent, EP 2 087 407, that it accused both Aster Graphics and Seine Holland of infringing in the Netherlands in April and May this year, with the case referring to “the importation, offer and sale of certain toner cartridges for use in various models of Hewlett-Packard laser beam printers”.

Canon released its usual IP case statement with this announcement, noting: “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 OEM also took up an unrelated patent infringement case against German companies KMP and wta earlier this month, to which both companies responded this week, and has registered a new complaint at the United States International Trade Commission in an extension of its case begun against US-based aftermarket companies in January.
