Canon continues to defend its IP with Amazon listing removals

June 16, 2021

The OEM reported it requested the removal of toner cartridges offered by Plumeria Ecom via Amazon UK and Spain, by Psa Computo y Papeleria from Amazon Mexico and by Gotoners from Amazon Canada.

Canon Inc. announced that it filed Report Infringement Forms with Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.es based on the alleged use of claims 1 and 2 of the UK and Spanish portions of Canon’s European Patent EP 1 977 289 (“EP ‘289”) regarding certain models of toner cartridges offered by Plumeria Ecom under the following ASINs (Amazon Standard Identification Numbers).

Country Cartridge model ASIN
UK CE320A, CE321A, CE322A, CE323A B07X5NMF39
Spain CE320A, CE321A, CE322A, CE323A B07X5NMF39

Afterwards, Amazon took down the respective products.

These products are compatible with the above-identified OEM HP cartridge models and provide inter alia a non-OEM housing and a non-OEM force receiving device according to claim 1 of EP ‘289. Furthermore, they comprise an elastic portion according to claim 2 of EP ‘289.

Canon also announced the filing of an infringement report with Amazon.mx seeking the removal of Amazon.mx listings for certain toner cartridges sold by ACM Consumibles for use in HP laser beam printers.

Canon’s infringement report alleged that claim 160 of Mexican Patent Number 308881 was infringed by certain model CE255A toner cartridges offered by Psa Computo y Papeleria under the Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) B07BR6S6GR.

After receiving Canon’s Report Infringement Form, Amazon removed the respective products, and at the time of this announcement, the above-identified listings of Psa Computo y Papeleria were no longer available on Amazon.mx.

In Canada, Canon filed an infringement report with Amazon.ca seeking the removal of an Amazon.ca listing for certain toner cartridges sold by Gotoners.

Canon’s infringement report alleged that certain model CB540A, CB541A, CB542A, CB543A, CC530A, CC531A, CC532A and CC533A toner cartridges sold by Gotoners via Amazon.ca infringed Canon’s Canadian Patent no. 2,635,791. Canon requested the removal of the corresponding listings for these products, having Amazon Standard Identification Numbers B07MMPPSVS and B086V5GDJ1.

At the time of this announcement, products sold under the above-identified listings were no longer available on Amazon.ca.

Filing an infringement report with Amazon.ca is a service offered by Amazon and does not constitute an official finding of infringement. The decision to take down a product is in the discretion of Amazon and is based on information provided by Canon.

Amazon informed the vendors about the takedown and the vendors may object to it.
