The most constant news we would say is the Amazon take downs by Canon that now happen almost on a weekly basis, these constant take downs of infringing toner products coming from China has sent many in the industry to regroup and to refocus their perspective of these products, and we expect more Amazon take downs to continue for years to come. Then we would say the constant OEM lawsuits Vs the manufacturers, re-sellers and distributors of Chinese Clone toners, there has been so many lawsuits over the years, but 2019 was different since the OEM’s have been way more aggressive in challenging the status-quo that the Chinese toner cloners have established over the past decade.
