Three Companies Denied Inkjet Ink Supplies Imports

Separate Seizure and Forfeiture Orders have been issued to three companies, all on the same day, for attempting to import inkjet cartridges that violate the same standing General Exclusion Order related to No. 337-TA-691 investigation.

According to documents submitted to RT Media, California-based Elmart Inc. and Quantum Tech International Inc., as well as Oregon-based PTS Portland Trade Services Inc. have allegedly violated the GEO related to No. 337-TA-691 investigation. In response to the Customs’ report, the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) approved and issued the seizure and forfeiture orders against the companies.

On September 23, 2009, Hewlett-Packard USA filed a lawsuit, claiming 11 companies infringed 4 of its U.S. patent Nos: 6,089,687; 6,264,301; 6,959,985 and 7,104,630. The USITC instituted an investigation on October 29, 2009 and issued a GEO on January 7, 2011.
