Canon Wins Injunction Against Third Toner-Cartridge Maker in Germany

Earlier this month, Canon Inc. of Tokyo, Japan, had reported that it had won preliminary injunctions against two unauthorized, third-party toner-cartridge manufacturers in Germany, and now last week it announced that it had been awarded a preliminary injunction against a third  unauthorized cartridge manufacturer in Germany.

The firm reported on August 25th that it had obtained a preliminary injunction from the District Court Düsseldorf in Germany against Coemedia GmbH, as well as against its managing director. The preliminary injunction is based on the infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European patent EP 2 087 407 relating to a drum unit and a process cartridge used in toner cartridge . The preliminary injunction prevents Coemedia GmbH from selling laser-printer toner cartridges comprising a drum unit with a certain coupling member, e.g. via under the ASINs (=Amazon Standard Identification Number) B0052WDC3S and B00CSNENYG. The cartridges can be used to replace the cartridge models HP CE505X and HP CF280X that are compatible with HP laser printers.
