Canon requests removal of toner cartridges from Amazon.com, including LEMERO UEXPECT brand cartridges sold by Color Office Tech.
Canon Inc. announced the filing of infringement reports with Amazon.com seeking the removal of Amazon.com listings for certain toner cartridges.
Canon’s infringement reports identified the product offerings shown in the table below and alleged that cartridges sold under these offerings infringe Canon’s U.S. Pat. No. 11,314,199. Canon requested that Amazon remove theses product offerings from Amazon.com.
At the time of this announcement, the product offerings listed above were no longer available on Amazon.com.
While Canon had previously filed infringement reports with Amazon.com based on Canon’s U.S. Patent No. 8,688,008 against compatible cartridges having the same relevant structure as genuine HP toner cartridge models CF217, and CF230, these latest reports were based on Canon’s U.S. Pat. No. 11,314,199, which covers alternative designs.
Canon said: “Throughout the development, sales and marketing process, Canon respects the intellectual property of other companies and individuals and expects others to similarly respect Canon’s intellectual property rights.
“Canon remains committed to pursuing legal enforcement against those who do not respect Canon’s intellectual property.”
