Since the not-so-public settlement between HP and Memjet, one of Memjet’s resellers has signed up an agreement with HP as well.
The president of the New Hampshire-based company, Formax Technologies Inc., stated his company had been “simply dragged into the legal mess” between Memjet and HP Inc.
T. Ryan Lindsay noted that Formax is “one of a hundred resellers” involved in the previous patent dispute between Memjet and HP.
As reported by Tonernews, Lindsay said HP Inc. had accepted a settlement offer and he was grateful the patent dispute had been settled. Formax specializes in digital printing and finishing, data destruction, pressure sealers and mailing solutions.
In May, HP Inc. filed a complaint that alleged Memjet violated the section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the U.S., which relates to importing, selling patents-infringing inkjet printers, printheads, ink cartridges, components and products containing the same.
The USITC was requested to issue a general exclusion order (GEO) or a limited exclusion order, along with cease and desist orders on the aforesaid products in the light of the complaint.
At the end of June, both OEMs reached a settlement under confidential terms. A USITC official revealed that since an investigation had been initiated before the settlement was reached, they will have to review a letter filed by the parties before dismissing the complaint.
