On 20 March 2019 Canon filed a complaint against LD Products alleging patent infringement of the OEM’s ‘646 patent. On 29 April 2019 Canon amended the complaint alleging that LD Products also infringe the OEM’s ‘740, ‘494, ‘760, ‘916, ‘736 and ‘304 patents.
LD Products response was not only to deny the alleged patent infringement, but to also file two counterclaims against Canon.
The two companies have now agreed to a Consent Judgement which claims that LD Products “Defendant has imported, sold, and/or offered for sale in the United
States the Accused Products.” The legal document goes on to say “For purposes of this lawsuit and any proceeding to enforce this Consent Judgment, Defendant does not contest that all of the claims of the Asserted Patents asserted in Plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint are valid, enforceable, and infringed by the Accused Products. Nothing in this Consent Judgment shall be construed as an admission of liability by any party for any other purpose.”
The two parties agreed that effective as of the date of the content judgement, that “making, using, selling, or offering for sale in the United States, or importing into the United States”, any toner cartridges that infringe the named patents.
