Samsung takes action against new-build resellers in Germany

Samsung takes action against new-build resellers in Germany

December 4, 2013

Munich's Court of Justice

Munich’s Court of Justice

The OEM has obtained injunctions against seven resellers in Germany over the distribution of illegal new-build toner cartridges. 

The proceedings were taken up by Munich’s District Court on 22 and 26 November against the resellers, with the “preliminary” injunctions concerning distribution of illegal new-build toner cartridges, which infringe Samsung patents. Samsung noted in particular that not only are the resellers “provisionally” prohibited from selling the illegal products, but that the lawsuits are intended to protect “consumers and companies that produce and sell eco-friendly remanufactured toner cartridges”.

Samsung’s statement reads: “On 22 and 26 November 2013, the Munich District Court issued preliminary injunctions against seven resellers upon Samsung’s request. The legal proceedings against the relevant resellers relate to the distribution of illegal new moulding toner cartridges i.e. arbitrarily manufactured unlicensed non-OEM toner cartridges.

“Samsung discovered that different types of new moulding toner cartridges are available on the market, and has applied for the preliminary injunctions on 15 and 22 November 2013 in Germany. The new moulding toner cartridges infringe upon the company’s key patents.

“The affected resellers are provisionally enjoined from selling the accused products. Samsung also filed several patent infringement suits against various resellers regarding new moulding toner cartridges on 25 and 26 November 2013 in Germany. These lawsuits are intended to protect the rights and interests of consumers and companies that produce and sell eco-friendly remanufactured toner cartridges.”
