EpsonInk cartridges infringement successful for Epson : In on-going activities to protect its intellectual property rights, Seiko Epson Corporation ("Epson") recently filed patent infringement proceedings in the English High Court against CybaHouse Limited to stop the importation from China, and supply within the UK, of certain Epson compatible printer cartridges (IM JET brand). Epson has now agreed to settle the case out of Court, based on undertakings from CybaHouse, their sister company Nutronic Limited and their directors that they will cease trading in the Epson compatible cartridges. The settlement terms also include the payment by CybaHouse Limited of Epson’s legal costs plus an undisclosed sum in respect of damages.
