HP Announces Settlement Agreements with Asia Pacific Microsystems, Inc. and LD Products Inc

HP and Asia Pacific Microsystems, Inc. reached an amicable worldwide patent settlement to resolve ongoing patent litigation relating to HP’s inkjet print cartridges. As part of the settlement, APM acknowledged manufacturing infringing print cartridge components for a variety of customers and took immediate steps to halt production of the infringing components. As a result, HP agreed to dismiss APM from a pending patent infringement case in federal court in California. HP also reached a comprehensive settlement agreement with LD Products, Inc. regarding allegations by HP with respect to the sale of misidentified ink and toner cartridges and infringing ink cartridges. As part of the settlement, LD Products has agreed to change its sales practices with regards to selling aftermarket cartridges for HP printers, and additionally has agreed to cease the sale of a range of infringing inkjet ink cartridges. The APM settlement is based on litigation filed by HP with the United States International Trade Commission as well as in the California Federal District Court, alleging the sale and distribution of infringing inkjet print cartridges in the United States. The ITC ruled that the HP patents were valid and that APM was guilty of patent infringement as both a contributory infringer and by inducement. HP took issue with LD Products for selling HP compatible clone cartridges labeled as remanufactured on both LD Product’s and third-party websites. After several requests to cease and desist, and involved discussions between the companies, HP filed litigation in the California Federal District Court alleging multiple illegal acts under the federal Lanham Act, which prohibits trademark infringement, trademark dilution and false advertising, as well as violation of California state law for unfair competition and false advertising. As part of the settlement agreement, LD Products has agreed to a structured plan governing how it describes and sells newly built and remanufactured print cartridges, and to cease the practice of selling misidentified products. Additionally, LD Products has compensated HP for a portion of its legal costs.
