Canon announced that it has been granted a preliminary injunction for patent infringement in Germany against Coemedia GmbH and its Managing Director, which takes the total up to three this week.
Canon announced that it obtained a preliminary injunction, which among other things contains injunctive relief, granted by the District Court Düsseldorf against Coemedia GmbH as well as against its Managing Director.
The preliminary injunction is based on the infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European patent EP 2 087 407 relating to a drum unit and a process cartridge. The preliminary injunction orders Coemedia GmbH not to offer and distribute laser toner cartridges comprising a drum unit with a certain coupling member, e.g. via amazon.de under the ASINs (=Amazon Standard Identification Number) B0052WDC3S and B00CSNENYG. The mentioned cartridges can replace the cartridge models HP CE505X and HP CF280X compatible with HP laser beam printers.
Earlier this week The Recycler reported of two further injunctions granted to Canon against Amazon reseller Printperfect Ltd and Moreinks Ltd. Both were also for the infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European patent EP 2 087 407 relating to a drum unit and a process cartridge.
The preliminary injunction granted by the District Court Düsseldorf against Coemedia GmbH as well as against its Managing Director is not yet final. Canon can enforce the decision after service of the PI on the Defendants is completed.
