HP Receives Favorable Ruling from ITC on Inkjet Print Cartridge Patent Infringement Suit

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP today announced it has obtained a favorable Initial Determination by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding the importation and sale of patent-infringing inkjet print cartridges.

The ITC ruling upholds the validity of HP’s patents in this case, finding MicroJet Technology Co. in violation as a direct infringer of HP’s patents and finding Asia Pacific Microsystems (APM) in violation as a contributory infringer of those patents. 

“HP is pleased with the outcome on these matters and the ITC’s pursuit of legal enforcement against practices that violate intellectual property rights,” said Andy Binder, director, Inkjet and Web Solutions Market Development, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “We are committed to quality in our products and will continue pursuing action to protect HP’s innovations and, by extension, value to our customers.”

The decision is based on investigations into a complaint filed by HP and instituted by the U.S. ITC on June 21, 2010, alleging violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States and sale of HP-compatible inkjet print cartridges that infringe HP patents.
