Afterwards, Amazon took down the products. These products are compatible with the HP toner cartridge model CE505A and provide inter alia a non-OEM coupling member, a non-OEM drum as well as a non-OEM housing.

In the second case, Canon filed a Report Infringement Form with Amazon Italy based on the alleged use of claim 1 and 25 of the Italian portion of Canon’s European Patent EP 2 087 407 regarding the cartridge model “CF280A” offered by Lemy S.r.l.s. under the ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) B07CK2L2VJ.
