USITC issues final HP inkjet determination and exclusion order

USITC issues final HP inkjet determination and exclusion order

October 26, 2011

 The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has this week released its final determination on its investigation into the violation of HP’s inkjet patents.

The body has also announced the official termination of the investigation, and the final details of the exclusion order issued against several key HP inkjet patents.

Investigation 337-TA-723 was launched last year, naming a large number of companies as directly or indirectly infringing its patents, including MicroJet, APM, Mipo Tech and SinoTime.

The long and convoluted case has seen various settlements with some of the defendants involved over the last year, as well as an investigation into whether HP had enough evidence to accuse APM of being a direct infringer rather than the lesser claim of indirectly causing infringement.

The USITC eventually ruled that HP did have enough evidence, and has determined that a general exclusion order is the most suitable remedy.

On 24 October, the USITC issued the exclusion order barring any products with the concerned patents from importation into the United States. Any inkjet cartridge with a printhead or component infringing the following patents;

-Claims 1-6 and 8-10 of the US Patent No. 6,234,598, (the 598 patent).

– Claims 1-6 and 8-17 of the US Patent No. 6,309,053 (the 053 patent).

– Claims 1, 3-5 and 8-12 of the US Patent No. 6,398,347, (the 347 patent).

– Claims 1-14 of the US Patent No. 6,481,817, (the 817 patent).

– Claims 9-15 of the US Patent No. 6,402,279, (the 279 patent).
