Canon vs GPI case comes to a close

August 9, 2018

General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd has issued a statement regarding the settlement of its long-running patent infringement dispute with Canon.

On 19 June 2017, Canon was awarded $4.5 million (€4.02 million) in damages after a jury found that GPI and Color Imaging, Inc had infringed the OEM’s patent for a toner bottle design.

However, the case, which originally began in 2015, did not end there as GPI opted to move a Motion for Judgement as a Matter of Law, New Trial and Remittitur in the U.S. District Court for the Northern Division of Georgia, Atlanta Division.

This motion was subsequently denied by a judge.

In February this year Canon was then granted a permanent injunction and 20 percent enhancement of damages. GPI responded by vowing to continue its legal battle against the OEM – but 6 months later, the case has finally come to a close, with both parties reaching a settlement.

GPI has now issued the following statement regarding the conclusion of the lawsuit.

“Canon and General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd. (GPI) have agreed to resolve their pending lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia regarding GPI’s alleged infringement of Canon’s U.S. Patent No. 7,647,012.  To resolve the lawsuit, GPI will stipulate to a consent judgment and permanent injunction that prohibits it from making, importing, using, selling, and offering for sale the toner bottle products that Canon accused of infringement.  As part of the resolution, GPI also agreed to pay Canon an undisclosed amount.”
