PrintAbout sees number of victories in Samsung Netherlands case

PrintAbout sees number of victories in Samsung Netherlands case

January 22, 2014

District Court of The Hague

District Court of The Hague

The company saw all but one of Samsung’s claims against it rejected by the Court of The Hague, and believes the judgment may have “significant consequences” for the OEM’s EU patent actions concerning toner cartridges.

PrintAbout, which belongs to the “top three resellers of inkjet and toner cartridges in Holland and Belgium”, reported that on 9 January the Court of The Hague ruled on Samsung’s case against PrintAbout, concerning “several EU-designs, patents and a claim based on unlawful advertising”, and added that it is “pleased to announced” that it had “mainly won the case against Samsung”.

The company noted that Samsung “only won the case concerning one point: more in particular concerning one of the two invoked patents”, and that the other claims “were all rejected by the Court”. In addition to this, no injunction was ordered against PrintAbout, with the Court agreeing with it concerning a patent in the case, number 744.

The Court judged that claims 1, 2 and 12 of the patent were “deemed to be invalid”, and that PrintAbout “d[id] not infringe this patent”, which PrintAbout states “is an important judgment, as this judgment might have significant consequences for Samsung’s European proceeding based on its patents concerning toners”.

The company added: “Currently, there are still two proceedings on the merits pending (initiated by Samsung). PrintAbout is pleased with the outcome of the preliminary proceedings and has every confidence in the legal continuation of this matter.”

The case was previously reported on by The Recycler a few weeks ago, and followed the OEM’s previous actions of a similar vein in Germany in December 2013.
