Canon submits 2 million euro lawsuit against cartridge importer
JULY-2012 – Canon is demanding millions of euros in compensation against an undisclosed German importer of new cartridges, according to ‘The Recycler’. The Recycler says that it has seen papers stating the imports breach Canon’s intellectual property patent EP 0 735 432 B1 and that the Japanese company is claiming damages in excess of €2 million. Canon has yet to comment on the claim, but the move follows a long list of intellectual property lawsuits filed by OEMs against newbuilt imports.
