Canon Inc. formally files a lawsuit against various companies of the GCC group. The original equipment manufacturer's case (civil action number 06-CV-3324) alleges GCC to have infringed upon a patent filed by Canon in the USA, and directly touches on some models of GCC's 100% brand new compatible toner cartridges produced and sold under the company's Q-Print™ and Q-Fax™ brand names.

Chris Mercer, Chief Executive Officer of Green Cartridge Company Limited, the parent company of the GCC group, is quoted, "We have the utmost respect for other parties' intellectual property and we go to great lengths and great expense to ensure that we do not infringe any valid intellectual property unless we are properly licensed. Toward that end, before releasing a product in the US, we obtain a clearance opinion from Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks, P.C., one of Boston's most experienced law firms devoted to the practice of intellectual property law. In fact, we obtained such an opinion with respect to the Canon patent on which we have been sued. We have complete faith in the integrity of the patent system in the United States, and we look forward to establishing in court that indeed our design does not infringe Canon's rights."

The GCC group, a successful manufacturer of 100% brand new compatible consumables for 15 years, has partnered with OEMs and leading private brands, providing the market with compatible consumables that are at par with OEM product standards. Procedure for the GCC group's new product development includes in-house intellectual property research and due diligence.

Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks, P.C. will confidently represent the GCC group in the proceedings. For queries or further details, please contact Scott Odom, Executive Director, Sales & Marketing through info@thegccgroup.com
