Ninestar Continues to Supply US Market Despite GEO

Leading aftermarket player, Ninestar, has sent press releases to its customers, assuring them that it will continue to supply the US market after the issuance of a General Exclusion Order (GEO) by the U.S. International Trade Commission (US ITC).

The GEO prohibits the unlicensed importation into the United States of certain HP and Canon toner cartridges and components which infringe Canon’s twisted drum gear coupling patents.

According to Ninestar, “In the post-GEO time, Ninestar promises to supply its products continuously to the United States market. The company is committed to developing quality and non-infringing products in a timely manner in order to meet customers’ needs”.

Ninestar launched its non-twist gear in the US market in 2011. The company claims that “In the past two years, the non-infringing solution has won great success with its stable quality. Ninestar also applied for patents for this gear design with the USPTO. The publication number is 13/823,259”.
