    U.S. Congress Passes New Legislation on OEM Warranties
     
    Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act United States Annotated Title 15 Commerce And Trade Chapter 50 Consumer Product Warranties 15 Section 2302 states:
     
    “No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer’s using,  in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) that is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if:
     
    -The warrantor satisfied the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service identified is used in connection with the warranted product
     
    -The Commission finds that such waiver is in the public interest
     
    This means that the manufacturer of the printer you are using cannot void the warranty on your printer because you use a cartridge or refill kit manufactured by someone other than the printer manufacturer.  This prohibition includes the use of compatible cartridges, clip-ons, continuous feeding mechanisms, refills, and ink
