The supreme court in Tokyo did not accept an appeal against a decision in favour of the office equipment firm, which had previously been decided by a lower court, Reuters reports. The original suit alleged that the printer cartridges supplier had infringed Canon’s patents.
Canon brought the lawsuit against the printer cartridges supplier Recycle Assist Company in 2004 and requested a court injunction to prevent the firm from importing and selling their branded printer cartridges that had been recycled and re-filled with non-Canon ink.
Canon product marketing executive of the business imaging solution division in south-east Asia Kenny Tan said that this popularity was a result of the companies strategies regarding packaging and digital printing.
