    CANON STRONGARMS NINESTAR TO STOP IMPORTING REMANUFACTURED PRODUCT IN THE U.S.A.

    Canon Says Ninestar Agrees to Halt Knockoff Printer-Refill Sales
    Canon Inc. , the world’s largest maker of cameras and office equipment, said China’s Ninestar Image International Ltd. and retailers agreed to stop importing and selling copycat printer toner cartridges.

    Canon filed complaints last year at the U.S. International Trade Commission against 20 companies in China, Hong Kong and the U.S., claiming infringement of patents related to the rotating drums inside toner cartridges. The products can be used in Canon and Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ) laser printers. An ITC judge approved a consent order that will terminate the case, Tokyo- based Canon said in a statement today.

    The case is being withdrawn after the companies pledged not to sell the products without Canon’s consent or license, which the company said it “has no present intention to grant.” Canon said it filed the complaint to halt sales, “which is precisely what the consent order will do.”

    The ITC case is In the Matter of Toner Cartridges and Components Thereof, 337-731, U.S. International Trade Commission (Washington). The civil suit is Canon Inc. v. Ninestar Image International Ltd., 10cv4999, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
