    FTC Raps Epson, HP for Strong-Arm Tactics(south korea)

    Prices of printer
    accessories like ink, toner and ribbons are expected to come down after
    the Fair Trade Commission on Monday ordered printer manufacturers
    Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Epson to stop forcing retailers to keep prices
    artificially high.

    The FTC only gave a warning to Samsung Electronics, which it said had not leaned on retailers as heavily as the other two.

    According to the FTC, HP and Epson specified prices when supplying them
    to retailers and punish them if they do not stick to the recommended
    prices. The FTC expects the order will allow retailers to decide their
    own price and as thus benefit consumers by promoting competition.
