    Epson hits another third-party ink retailer
    Seiko Epson Corp. has scored another victory against a retailer of Epson-compatible ink-jet printer cartridges, it said Tuesday.
    The
    Japanese company recently filed patent infringement proceedings against
    CybaHouse Ltd., a reseller of third-party ink cartridges in
    Southend-on-Sea, England, to stop the sale and importation of
    Epson-compatible cartridges. CybaHouse imported the cartridges from an
    unidentified company in China and sold them in the U.K. under the “IM
    Jet” brand, Epson said in a statement.
    The case has been settled
    out-of-court after CybaHouse and a sister company, Nutronic Ltd., and
    their directors agreed to cease selling the cartridges in question,
    Epson said. CybaHouse also agreed to pay Epson’s legal costs and an
    undisclosed sum in damages.
    Seiko Epson has reported several
    successes since early this year after hitting companies selling
    third-party cartridges that it says infringe on its patents.
    In June
    it settled a case with Multi-Union Trading Co. Ltd. that saw 75 of
    Multi-Union’s cartridge models barred from being imported to the U.S.,
    Epson said. Multi-Union, in Hong Kong, sells its products in the U.S.
    under the PrintRite brand. A few days later Epson said that
    Environmental Business Products Ltd., a U.K. company, stopped importing
    and supplying Epson-compatible printer cartridges as a result of an out
    of court settlement between the two companies.
