    On December 22, 2023, Planet Green Cartridges, Inc. filed an extension to lawsuit 2:23-cv-06647 Vs. Amazon with the California 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    In this suit, Planet Green presented Amazon with conclusive evidence of multiple printer ink cartridge brands falsely advertised and labelled as remanufactured, despite being newly built clone products from China. Amazon’s response, invoking legal immunity under the Communications Decency Act, was challenged by the plaintiff as legally incorrect.

    Planet Green alleges in their lawsuit that the following brands were found
    to be new built clone cartridges, falsely sold as “remanufactured” and recycled products:

    According to the suit, Despite the evidence, Amazon reportedly continued to allow the deceptive sellers to operate on its platform, effectively endorsing their products by providing fulfilment services. This is seen as a direct violation of Amazon’s policies and its professed environmental mission. The lawsuit contends that Amazon’s deep involvement in distributing and promoting these deceptive clone cartridges renders them liable for their unlawful sale.

    Planet Green Cartridges, Inc. has been a longstanding industry leader in producing authentic recycled ink cartridge products in the United States. It alleges that Amazon’s actions have harmed consumers and genuine remanufacturers, leading to unfair competition and misleading environmentally conscious customers.

    The lawsuit seeks to hold Amazon accountable for facilitating the sale of these deceptive clone cartridges and undermining the integrity of its own platform’s policies and environmental objectives. The case highlights the growing concern over the accountability of online marketplaces in ensuring the accuracy of product claims and maintaining transparency in their operations.
