Canon settles IP case in Netherlands

Canon settles IP case in Netherlands

March 17, 2015

The OEM has withdrawn its case against Seine (Holland) B.V. due to a settlement between it and partner company Ninestar.

District Court of The Hague

District Court of The Hague

The announcement saw the OEM reveal the withdrawal of its patent infringement case against Seine (Holland) B.V. in the District Court of The Hague in the Netherlands. The case began in May 2014, as The Recycler previously reported.

The case concerned alleged infringement of the European patent EP 2 087 407, relating to “certain toner cartridges and photosensitive drum units” sold for use in Canon and HP laser printers, and Canon added that the case was “withdrawn in connection with a settlement” between it and Seine’s partner company Ninestar.

Canon posted its usual legal response to the development, stating that “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”.

The OEM began other IP cases against companies across Europe throughout 2014 relating to the same gear patent: including Armor, Artech and Pelikan; Aster in the Netherlands; KMP and wta as well as tintenalarm.de in Germany; European Cartridge Warehouse Limited and Printer Supplies Technology Limited in the UK; Zephyr SAS and Aster in France; and X-Com Shop Ltd. and OOO “Softrade” in Russia. It also began district court and USITC cases in the USA in February and May last year.
