    LEXMARK STRONG ARMS FIRMS TO SETTLE AND HELP IT’s U.S. I.T.C. CASE
    Lexmark Settles With 10 Firms Over Ink Cartridge Patents
    Importers
    of replacement toner cartridges for Lexmark products agree to entry of a
    permanent injunctionLEXINGTON, Ky., Feb 2011 — Lexmark International,
    Inc.  announced today that it has reached settlements with Alpha Image
    Tech, E-Toner Mart, Inc., Nano Pacific Corporation, Ninestar Image Co.
    Ltd., Ninestar Image International, Ltd., Ninestar Technology Company,
    Ltd., Print-Rite Holdings Ltd., Seine Image International Co. Ltd.,
    Union Technology International (M.C.O.) Co. Ltd., and Ziprint Image
    Corporation (the “Settling Parties”) in connection with patent
    litigation pending in the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and
    the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.  

    Lexmark
    alleged that the manufacture, importation and sale by the Settling
    Parties of replacement toner cartridges for various Lexmark laser
    printer and multifunction devices infringed Lexmark’s patent rights.

    Among
    the terms of the settlements, the Settling Parties have agreed to the
    entry of a final judgment and permanent injunction in the District Court
    litigation. In addition, the Settling Parties
    will not oppose Lexmark’s efforts to secure an order from the ITC
    banning future importation of infringing cartridges.
    While
    the Settling Parties did not admit any wrongdoing, they have confirmed
    their ongoing commitment to respect intellectual property rights by
    resolving the litigation amicably.(1)Related claims asserted by Lexmark
    against other parties to the litigation are unaffected by its agreements
    with the Settling Parties. The remaining terms of the settlements are
    confidential.
