Canon Wins Another Patent-Infringement Consent Judgement

Canon Inc. of Tokyo, Japan, today announced that it’s concluded a patent-infringement lawsuit against 9010-8077 Quebec Inc., which does business under the name Zeetoner, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The lawsuit involved toner cartridges sold for use with Canon and HP laser printers.

To resolve the lawsuit, Zeetoner stipulated to a consent judgment and permanent injunction from the Eastern District of New York, which prohibits Zeetoner from making, using, selling, and offering for sale in the United States and from importing into the United States, the toner cartridges that Canon accused of infringing U.S. Patent Nos. 9,746,826, 9,836,021, 9,841,727, 9,841,728, 9,857,765, 9,869,960 and 9,874,846.

Back on February 28th, Canon Inc., Canon U.S.A., and Canon Virginia submitted a patent-infringement complaint to the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and requested that the ITC issue a general exclusion order and cease-and-desist orders against some 50 companies, including Zeetoner, alleging that companies are importing into United States OEM-alternative toner cartridges and drums that violate various U.S. Canon patents.
