Canon Back to Russia to Defend Toner-Cartridge Patent
Canon believes that certain models of toner cartridges sold on the Russian market under the trademarks “Hi-Black” and “NetProduct” by these distributors infringe upon its patent.
The purpose of Canon’s claim is to stop infringement and to collect damages for patent infringement in accordance with Russian law.
The last time Canon was in Russia to defend its toner-cartridge patents was in late 2014, when it brought a lawsuit against Softtrade (see story here).
