According to Actionable Intelligence, Epson filed a patent infringement lawsuit last month against a manufacturer of compatible inkjet consumables.
The products at the center of concern are third-party ink cartridges, chips and ink bottles that can be used with Epson printers. Epson claims these products have infringed its US patents: 6,955,422(‘422), 8,794,749(‘749), and 8,454,116(‘116). The Epson product models include the T6941-5, T252, 702, T8581-4, T220, T542, etc.
Earlier this year, Epson accused an online seller of wide-format inkjet cartridges of infringing its U.S. patent 8,794,749 ('749).
It can be seen from such patent lawsuits taking place in 2022, that the printer manufacturers will aggressively defend their intellectual property rights (IPRs) in an effort to protect what they see as being their rightful “slice of the inkjet business printing market cake.”
