    Epson hits Taiwanese ink system maker
    A
    Taiwan court has barred a local manufacturer of continuous ink supply
    systems from producing models for Seiko Epson printers after receiving
    a petition from the Japanese company.Seiko Epson lodged a complaint
    with the district court in Taichung, central Taiwan, in April, alleging
    the systems infringe upon its Taiwanese patents. Earlier this month the
    court issued a preliminary injunction that prohibits U-Bar
    International from directly or indirectly manufacturing, importing or
    selling the continuous ink supply system for Epson printers.Seiko Epson
    plans to monitor if U-Bar complies with the injunction and will push
    the case forward if the Taiwanese company is found to be ignoring the
    court’s instructions, said Kenkichi Shibata, a spokesman for Seiko
    Epson.The injunction is the latest of several favourable outcomes for
    Seiko Epson from courts around the world.Most recently, four German
    online retailers agreed in out-of-court settlements to stop selling
    third-party ink cartridges for Epson printers. Last year similar
    out-of-court settlements were reached with companies in the UK and Hong
    Kong.
