The company has announced the conclusion of its dispute with Bublat GmbH & Co. KG and its managing directors as well as requesting more Amazon removals.

Canon announced that it signed a settlement agreement with Bublat GmbH & Co. KG and its managing directors in order to resolve their patent dispute regarding Canon’s European Patent EP 1 977 289 B1 (“EP ‘289”).

The matter at issue concerns the offering and distribution of certain laser toner cartridges by Bublat GmbH & Co. KG, via, for example, www.amazon.de and www.druckerpatronenexpress.de.

The settlement agreement inter alia includes a Europe-wide cease-and-desist declaration, whereupon Bublat GmbH & Co. KG and its managing directors are prohibited from making, offering, putting into circulation and/or importing and/or possessing certain laser toner cartridges that infringe claim 1 and 2 of EP ‘289 in all countries where EP 1 977 ‘289 B1 is valid and in force.

The cartridges at issue include a developing unit moveable relative to the drum unit when receiving force via a force receiving device. The respective cartridges can replace the OEM cartridge models HP CE320A, HP CE322A and HP CE323A which are compatible with HP laser beam printers.

Furthermore, Bublat GmbH & Co. KG as well as its managing directors have agreed to pay damages for past infringement to Canon. Further details of the settlement agreement are confidential.

Canon also announced the filing of an infringement report with Amazon.ca seeking removal of an Amazon.ca listing for certain toner cartridges sold by Ecshub.

Canon’s infringement report alleged that certain model CB540A, CB541A, CB542A and CB543A toner cartridges sold by Ecshub via Amazon.ca infringed Canon’s Canadian Patent no. 2,635,791.
