Feb. 3, 2016 – Today HP Inc. announced the favorable ruling to lift a patent infringement preliminary injunction by MEMJET. The ex parte preliminary injunction issued by the Regional Court in Munich affected HP Deutschland GmbH from sales of HP PageWide XL Series printers in Germany. In its ruling, the Court concluded the grounds for issuing the injunction were not satisfied, particularly as the HP PageWide XL products do not appear to infringe the asserted Memjet patent. Memjet may file an appeal of the decision.
“HP vigorously defends its intellectual property and is pleased with the court’s ruling in our favor,” said Thomas Valjak, Head of Large-Format Printing, EMEA, HP Inc. “We will now re-engage with our resellers and customers in Germany and offer HP’s PageWide XL printers and print heads that employ unique technology developed by HP over the last decades. HP’s PageWide XL products offer unique benefits in print speed, quality, reliability and usage cost.”
