Canon wins GEO in dongle case

September 1, 2015

USITC logoThe US International Trade Commission (ITC) has also issued cease-and-desist orders against a number of the defendants.

The court said the GEO affects “certain toner cartridges and components thereof covered by one or more of claims 160, 165, and 166 of the ‘278 patent; claims 171, 176, 179, 181, 189, 192, and 200 of the ‘564 patent; claims 23, 26, 27, and 29 of the ‘215 patent; claims 1-4 of the ‘090 patent; and claims 1, 7-9, 11, 12, and 34 of the ‘008 patent”.

Companies affected by the cease-and-desist orders include Acecom, Inc.-San Antonio, Do It Wiser LLC, Grand Image Inc., Green Project, Inc., Nectron International, Inc., Online Tech Stores, LLC, Printronic Corporation and Zinyaw LLC.

The case at the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) began in May 2014, following in the wake of Canon’s first case at the District Court for the Southern District of New York, which itself began in February 2014. Both cases concerned infringement of the OEM’s “dongle-gear” within toner cartridges – specifically the HP P2035, 2055 and P3015 – which are sold “for use in more than 50 models of Canon and HP laser beam printers”, Canon stated at the start of the case.

A number of the final few defendants – Ninestar Image Tech Limited; Zhuhai Seine Technology Co., Ltd.; Ninestar Technology Company, Ltd.; Seine Tech (USA) Co., Ltd.; Seine Image (USA) Co., Ltd.; Nano Pacific Corporation; Ink Technologies Printer Supplies, LLC; Katun Corporation and Linkyo Corporation – all reached an agreement with the OEM on the same day as ILG entered into its own settlement in February of this year.
