    Canon Names GCC Group and TallyGenicom in IP Suit
    May
    06, Canon filed suit against various units of the GCC Group and
    TallyGenicom, one of the Hong Kong-based cartridge maker’s North
    American distributors. Canon alleges that the defendants market
    products that use infringing technology to rotate OPC drums in toner
    cartridges to ensure that the drum is synchronized with a printer or
    fax machine. GCC
    Group manufactures and markets 100 percent new toner cartridges for
    print engines from Canon and other printer OEMs, and it is widely
    believed that the firm is a major supplier of Staples-branded toner
    cartridges
    .Canon has been relatively quiet about the lawsuit,
    which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
    New York. The firm did not issue a press release on the matter, and
    there is no mention of the lawsuit on either Canon’s corporate Web site
    or its Canon U.S.A. site. According to court records, it appears the
    complaints were filed and served to the defendants without a
    cease-and-desist notice. Richard Butler, a Canon spokesperson,
    confirmed that his company is seeking relief from the U.S. courts to
    resolve its complaint against the GCC Group and TallyGenicom. “Canon
    Inc. filed this patent-infringement lawsuit in the United States on May
    1, seeking an injunction against the manufacture and sale of the
    infringing cartridges and unspecified damages,” he said.Chris Mercer,
    CEO of Green Cartridge Company Limited, the parent company of the GCC
    Group, expressed confidence that his firm has not infringed Canon’s
    patent. In a prepared statement, he claimed, “We have utmost respect
    for other parties’ intellectual property, and we go to great lengths
    and great expense to ensure that we do not infringe any valid
    intellectual property unless we are properly licensed
    .
