    Epson wins patent ruling against Asian player
     May 05
    A federal judge has ruled that Hong
    Kong-based Multi-Union, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of recycled
    ink cartridges, is infringing Epson’s patent
    laws.
    Rejecting Multi-Union’s arguments of non-infringement and patent
    invalidity, the court found 23 models of Multi-Union cartridges sold for use in
    Epson printers to be in breach of the OEM giant’s dot matrix patents.

    However, the judge denied Epson’s request to remove the inkjet cartridges from the market, and refused to
    determine whether Epson’s dot matrix patents are valid. These issues will be
    tried by a jury in September 2005, who will also decide on monetary damages as
    requested by Epson.

    A spokesperson for Multi-Union said: “While we are
    disappointed with the court’s interpretation of Epson’s dot matrix patents and
    the rulings that flow from it, we believe that those patents will eventually be
    declared either invalid or not infringed. Consequently, we will continue to
    aggressively defend ourselves in this matter
    .”
