    HP Resolves Ink Cartridge Patent Infringement with Ninestar
    Mar 
    2009 HP  today announced that it has resolved patent violation issues
    with China-based Ninestar Image Co., Ltd. relating to HP 02 and HP 14
    inkjet cartridges.(1) .As part of the settlement, Ninestar acknowledges
    that HP’s patents are valid and infringed, and has agreed to stop
    selling the cartridges in question in the United States and other
    countries where HP has corresponding patent rights. Additionally, the
    company has agreed to pay HP an undisclosed sum of money.

    “HP is
    committed to defending its investment in intellectual property and will
    continue to vigorously pursue legal enforcement against practices that
    do not respect HP’s IP rights,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice
    president, Inkjet and Web Services Business, Imaging and Printing
    Group, HP. “We are pleased with the timely resolution of this matter
    and will continue to monitor the marketplace for intellectual property
    infringements as part of our commitment to worldwide testing and
    enforcement efforts.”

    This is HP’s second patent violation issue
    with Ninestar. In July 2006, HP filed complaints with both the U.S.
    District Court and the International Trade Commission for patent
    infringement relating to a different set of inkjet cartridges. The
    parties reached a settlement in March 2007 in which Ninestar admitted
    the validity of HP’s patents and agreed to remove its products from
    specified countries.
