Samsung sues six resellers in Germany

Samsung sues six resellers in Germany

August 21, 2014

District Court I Munich

District Court I Munich

Injunctions ruled against six unnamed resellers in the District Court I Munich for selling and distributing replica toner cartridges.

Digital Imaging reported on the patent infringement case issued by Samsung regarding illegal replica toner cartridges which has resulted in injunctions adopted against six resellers, with the ruling announced in the District Court I Munich on 21 July.

The case relates to “the sale and distribution of illegal replica toner cartridges” described as “newly manufactured, unlicensed, non-original toner cartridges” which Samsung had identified as being in circulation. These include the printer series CLP-310 / CLX-3170, CLP-320 / CLX-3180, CLP-365 / CLX-3305, Xpress M2825 / M4025 2875 and ProXpress / 4075th.

Interestingly, the article notes that the legal action “not only protects the intellectual property of the company. In addition, it is also intended to protect the rights and interests of the customers and the companies that manufacture and sell environmentally friendly, remanufactured toner cartridges”.

The resellers involved in the case “may appeal against this court decision”.

Samsung made a similar infringement claim in November 2013 against seven German cartridge resellers, four of which had appealed – HQ cartridges of Seevetal, CNN PrintPool of Hamburg, Großneuhausen-based Kolor Office Supplies, and North-Toner of Oststeinbek. A preliminary injunction had been issued against the resellers on 22 and 26 November in the District Court I Munich. The trial date had originally been scheduled for 24 April but has since been postponed twice.
