Canon Inc. announced the filing of an infringement report with Amazon.com seeking the removal of Amazon.com listings for certain toner cartridges sold by AZ Supplies for use in HP laser beam printers.
Canon’s infringement report alleged that certain model CB540A, CB541A, CB542A and CB543A toner cartridges sold by AZ Supplies via Amazon.com infringed Canon’s U.S. Patent No. 8,588,646. Canon requested that Amazon remove AZ Supplies’ listings for those products, namely, AZ Supplies’ listings with Amazon Standard Identification Numbers (“ASINs”) B07ZTXDMVR and B07ZTX9TN6.
At the time of this announcement, the above-identified AZ Supplies’ listings were no longer available on Amazon.com.
Due to the large volume of listings being removed from Amazon, Canon said it will no longer be reporting them weekly. Canon added that it remains committed to filing infringement reports with Amazon and will continue announcing summaries of its reporting activities quarterly.
