Canon patent infringement case in Russia
Canon believes that certain models of cartridges introduced into civil circulation to the Russian market under trademark “NVPRINT” by said entities infringe the Patents.
The purpose of the lawsuit is to stop infringement and to seek compensation for patent infringement in accordance with the Russian law.
Throughout the development, sales and marketing process, Canon respects the intellectual property rights of other companies and individuals and expects others to do the same. Canon remains committed to taking legal action against anyone who infringes Canon’s intellectual property rights.
Also in early September, Canon Inc. announced the conclusion of a patent infringement dispute with DRC SUPRIMENTOS DE INFORMÁTICA – EIRELI – ME, which also does business under the name “EDELTEC,” in Brazil, concerning toner cartridges sold for use in various models of HP laser beam printers.
The company emphasized again that it respects the intellectual property of other companies and individuals and expects others to similarly respect Canon’s intellectual property rights throughout the development, sales and marketing process, and it will remains committed to pursuing legal enforcement against those who do not respect Canon’s intellectual property.
