Samsung issues patent infringement statement

Samsung issues patent infringement statement

March 21, 2012

The OEM states that a number of toner cartridges in the EU market “may infringe on patents”.

Printer manufacturer Samsung has issued a statement that states that the OEM has taken steps to contact resellers in the EU market distributing toner cartridges “that may infringe on Samsung’s patents”.

The OEM states that “after conducting extensive internal investigation and evaluation, Samsung has reached the conclusion that the patent technique is applied in specific toner products of several branded newly produced cartridges […] carrying the distinctive numbers CLP-310, CLP-315, CLP-320, CLP-325, CLX-3170, CLX-3175 and CLX-3185 printers”.

The resellers have been “notified […] of these toners regarding Samsung’s patent positions”.

Maarten de Mol van Otterloo, Senior Manager of Legal and Sustainability Affairs at Samsung Electronics Europe, commented: “Samsung is keen to protect its brand, its customers and its business partners from suffering due to the sale of certain compatible products by which Samsung’s IP rights are infringed.

“Samsung has shown recently that it is committed to continuously defend its intellectual property and if necessary will pursue legal enforcement against practises that do not respect Samsung’s IP rights.”

HP has also recently taken action in Europe, and has contacted a number of Spanish resellers importing and selling new cartridges that are alleged to breach OEM patents.
