Static Control releases statement regarding Canon GEO

Static Control releases statement regarding Canon GEO

July 26, 2013

gavel2Largest manufacturer of aftermarket imaging systems and components asserts that its products will not be affected by newly issued General Exclusion Order.

Static Control has stated that the General Exclusion Order (GEO) issued by the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) on 28 June that prohibits the importation of products that infringe two US patents belonging to Canon will not affect its products.

The GEO relates to patent numbers ‘803 and ‘454, covering the design of gears used on the OPC drums in hundreds of Canon and HP cartridges, and was issued following a lengthy legal case initially filed by Canon in January 2012 against over 30 manufacturers, importers and distributors of toner cartridges and OPC drums.

In response to the case, Static Control stated that it “recognised the potential threat of patent infringement and successfully developed a unique, fully functional gear” which the company said has ensured that any risk of infringing Canon’s patents has been eliminated. It added that it filed for patents in 2007, and in October 2010 and December 2011 was issued with two US patents for non-twisted gears, Static Control’s ZeroTwist Gears, which the company claims were the first-to-market solution for remanufacturers and “are still the only solution protected by multiple US patents”.

Static Control added: “We have stated for more than 18 months, our gears are safe and will not be impacted by the GEO. We take all patents extremely serious and respect the intellectual property of the OEMs through the development, engineering and manufacturing process.”
