This is the first case heard by the court, which opened on January 1, according to a report by

In this case, the plaintiff demanded Shanghai Yinjia International Trade Company (Yinjia) cease the infringement and pay RMB 1 million (US$162,501) compensation. Yinjia opposed HP’s allegations and argued that the technology used in its ink cartridge is different from that in HP’s HP818XL Black ink cartridge. The court did not give a ruling after the hearing.

By the end of March, nearly 300 complaints were filed with the court, of which 80% were patent-infringement cases.
