Canon, Printperfect, Reach Settlement in Germany

Canon Inc. of Tokyo, Japan, reports that it and Printperfect Ltd., have agreed to resolve their pending patent dispute involving Printperfect’s third-party toner cartridges by signing a settlement agreement.

Canon had announced in August 2017 that the  Düsseldorf  court had issued an injunction against Printperfect (see story here). Printperfect accepted a preliminary injunction from the District Court Düsseldorf in Germany based on the infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 2 087 407 B1 as a final and binding solution between the parties.

Regarding the English part of EP 2 087 407 B1, Printperfect has agreed to refrain from selling or importing  laser-printer toner cartridges comprising an imaging drum unit with a certain coupling member for use in various models of HP or Canon laser printers in the United Kingdom. Further details of the settlement agreement are confidential.
