Canon Inc. had announced the conclusion of a patent infringement lawsuit against 9010-8077 Quebec Inc., which does business under the name Zeetoner.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and concerned certain toner cartridges sold for use in Canon and HP laser beam printers.
To resolve the lawsuit, Zeetoner stipulated to a Consent Judgment and Permanent Injunction from the Eastern District of New York, which prohibits Zeetoner from making, using, selling and offering for sale in the United States and from importing into the United States, the toner cartridges that Canon accused of infringing U.S. Patent Nos. 9,746,826, 9,836,021, 9,841,727, 9,841,728, 9,857,765, 9,869,960 and 9,874,846.
Zeetoner was one of 32 companies filed against by Canon earlier this year; 21 of the businesses involved were accused of infringing all 9 of Canon’s patents, while Zeetoner was one of those accused of infringing 7 of the 9.
