Canon Concludes Patent-Infringement Lawsuit Against Moreinks

Canon Inc. of Tokyo, Japan, reported that Moreinks Ltd., as well as its managing directors agreed to resolve their pending patent dispute by signing a settlement agreement.

Moreinks accepted a preliminary injunction (docket no. 4a O 76/17) issued by the District Court Düsseldorf in Germany based on the alleged infringement of the German portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 2 087 407 B1 as final and binding between the parties. With respect to the English part of EP 2 087 407 B1, notwithstanding the fact that no proceedings have been issued in England and Wales, Moreinks Ltd. has voluntarily agreed to refrain from making, offering, putting into circulation and/or importing and/or owning laser toner cartridges made up of an imaging drum unit with a certain coupling member for use in various HP Inc. and/or Canon Inc. laser printers in Great Britain. Moreinks also agreed to pay damages for past infringements on Canon patents. Further details of the settlement agreement are confidential.
