Ninestar Boasts of its ‘IP-Safe’ Epson Inkjet Consumables

Ninestar Corporation of Zhuhai, China, today stated that despite various Epson intellectual-property (IP) lawsuits recently filed against third-party makers of Epson-compatible ink cartridges, Ninestar can provide IP-safe alternatives.

The company noted that last month, Epson filed a patent-infringement lawsuit last month against a manufacturer of compatible inkjet-printer consumables. The consumables consisted of ink cartridges, chips, and ink bottles that can be used with Epson printers. Epson said the products infringed these U.S. Epson patents: 6,955,422(‘422), 8,794,749(‘749), and 8,454,116(‘116). Earlier this year, Epson also accused an online seller of wide-format inkjet cartridges of infringing its U.S. patent 8,794,749 (‘749).

Ninestar Provides IP-Safe Business Inkjet Solutions for Epson printers

Ninestar stated that all of its consumables designed for use with Epson printers are safe from IP lawsuits. The reason why, it said, is because it’s made a “huge investment” in developing and acquiring its own patents and empties import license. This has enabled it to provide IP-safe solutions for both new-built and remanufactured ink cartridges.
