The seminar, one of a series of free-to-attend meetings that Static Control is intending to hold across Europe and Asia throughout this year, took place on 7 May, and saw van Dijk tell Greek firms “not to sell clones” alongside Static Control.
ETIRA added that the “huge attendance” at the free seminar proved that the events “garner wide interest” from the industry, with local companies “keen to learn the latest industry techniques and developments”. Both the association and Static Control outlined “the dangers involved” in trading clones, mentioning the recent OEM legal actions in Europe from Samsung and Canon as “a clear sign that OEMs will definitively sue you when you sell patent-infringing new-builds”.
The trade association also noted that van Dijk met with ETIRA’s only Greek member, Printerland, and its owner Nektarios Ntagkas, to discuss the “latest local market issues”. Static Control’s previous free European seminar took place in Poland on 25 April, and saw Lexmark’s Andrew Gardner address delegates.
