Following the news earlier this month that Canon had filed an infringement report with Amazon against Etechwork, the OEM is at it again, this time requesting the removal of toner cartridges sold by INKMATE.
Canon Inc revealed this week that it has filed an infringement report with Amazon, requesting the removal of certain toner cartridge listings from INKMATE, for use in HP laser beam printers.
Canon’s infringement report alleged that certain model CF280A toner cartridges sold by INKMATE via Amazon.com infringed Canon’s U.S. Patent Nos. 8,280,278; 8,630,564; 8,682,215; 8,688,008; and 8,676,090.
Canon requested that Amazon remove INKMATE’s listings for those products, namely, INKMATE’s listings with Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (“ASINs”) B06XPWTQZ8, B01EN32KDE, B01EN374YY, B06XPXNCBT, B01EN44LUI, B01EN4AFB2, B01EN1X6H0, B01EN21XHE and B06XPV6B97.
At the time of this announcement, the above-identified INKMATE listings were no longer available on Amazon.com.
Canon has explained that it “remains committed to pursuing legal enforcement against those who do not respect Canon’s intellectual property”, a statement backed up by the various patent infringement lawsuits filed by the OEM this year.
