Canon Gets Patent-Infringement Preliminary Injunction Against Biggest Discount

Canon Inc. of Tokyo, Japan, is continuing its campaign defending patent infringement of its toner cartridges and imaging drums used in HP Inc. laser printers, with the firm announcing today  that it’s obtained a preliminary injunction, which inter alia contains injunctive relief, by the District Court Düsseldorf against Biggest Discount Ltd. as well as against its managing directors.

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. The accused act consists in the offer and distribution of laser toner cartridges made up of an imaging drum unit via amazon.de under the ASINs (=Amazon Standard Identification Number) B00532ADSO and B002KNJKGA. These cartridges replace the cartridges CE505X and CE505A compatible with certain HP laser  printers.
