Canon settles one case and takes down more Turkish cartridges

December 4, 2019

Canon announced the conclusion of its dispute with Ines Krämer, trading as “Büroartikelhandel DruFax” and “Faxland” and requested removal of toner cartridges offered by KOPYA TEKNOLOJ? SAN VE T?C LTD ?T? via Amazon Turkey.

Canon Inc. and Ines Krämer, doing business as “Büroartikelhandel DruFax” and “Faxland,” agreed to resolve their pending patent dispute by signing a settlement agreement.

Ines Krämer inter alia accepted a preliminary injunction (docket no. 4a O 10/19) of the District Court Düsseldorf based on the infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 2 087 407 B1 as final and binding between the parties.

Furthermore, Ines Krämer has agreed to refrain from making, offering, putting into circulation and/or importing and/or possessing laser toner cartridges comprising a drum unit with a certain coupling member for use in various models of HP and/or Canon laser beam printers in all countries where EP 2 087 407 B1 is valid and in force and to pay damages for past infringements to Canon.

Further details of the settlement agreement remain confidential.

Canon also announced that it filed a Report Infringement Form with Amazon.com.tr based on the alleged use of claims 1 and 2 of the Turkish portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 1 977 289 (“EP ‘289”) regarding the cartridge model CC530A offered by KOPYA TEKNOLOJ? SAN VE T?C LTD ?T? under the ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) B07HM4SZ28.

Afterwards, Amazon took down the respective product.

This product is compatible with the OEM HP cartridge model and provides inter alia a non-OEM housing and a non-OEM force receiving device according to claim 1 of EP ‘289. Furthermore, it comprises an elastic portion according to claim 2 of EP ‘289.

Filing a Report Infringement Form with Amazon is a service offered by Amazon and does not comprise any official finding of validity or infringement of a patent. The decision to take down a product is in the discretion of Amazon and is based on information provided by Canon.

Amazon informed the vendor about the takedown and the vendor may object to it.
