The latest twist in Canon’s legal tale

The latest twist in Canon’s legal tale

November 16, 2018

This week the OEM has announced the settlement of a patent infringement dispute and the filing of more reports with Amazon, requesting product removals.

This year has been a very busy one for Canon on the legal front, with the OEM filing a series of patent infringement lawsuits both in the United States and further afield. The latest case to approach its conclusion is Canon’s dispute with Biggest Discount Limited.

The OEM has revealed that Canon and Biggest Discount Limited have agreed to “resolve their pending patent dispute by signing a settlement agreement.” Biggest Discount Limited accepted a preliminary injunction handed down by the District Court of Dusseldorf, based on the infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European patent EP 2 087 407 B1.

Biggest Discount has also agreed to “refrain from making, offering, putting into circulation and/or importing and/or owning laser toner cartridges comprising a drum unit with a certain coupling member sold for use in various models of HP and/or Canon laser beam printers in the UK.

The company has also agreed to pay damages for past infringements to Canon.

This week Canon has also resumed its war against patent infringement on Amazon, filing two Report Infringement Forms with Amazon UK regarding cartridge models offered by both Ink N Toner UK Retail Ltd and Officetec (UK).

These forms were filed based on the alleged use of claims 1 and 25 of the UK portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 2 087407.

Amazon subsequently removed the cartridge listings and informed the vendors.
