Commercial Copy Adds Xerox to List of Companies it’s Suing for Patent Infringement
In April 2017, Commercial Copy Innovations (CCI) of Copy Mesa, California, filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Ricoh Electronics, Ricoh USA, Mimaki USA, and Lanier Worldwide, and now is filing a similar patent-infringement lawsuit against Xerox, according to The Northern California Record.
Commercial Copy Innovations filed a complaint on July 5th in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Southern Division against Xerox, alleging that Xerox directly and/or through its distribution network, placed infringing products “within the stream of commerce without the plaintiff’s consent.”
According to the complaint, Commercial Copy has acquired all rights to U.S. patent for various products developed by Eastman Kodak Company, alleging that Xerox markets and manufactures products that infringe on Commercial Copy products.
