Canon to Appeal U.S. ITC Noninfringement Determination
| 23 May, 2019
Canon says that it plans to appeal the U.S. International Trade Commission's final determination terminating Investigation No. 337-TA-1106, which pertains to certain toner cartridges and photosensitive drum units sold for use in Canon and HP laser beam printers.
In reaching its decision, the ITC determined that the claims at issue should be interpreted narrowly to exclude the respondents' accused products. Canon believes that narrow interpretation is legally erroneous, and will appeal the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which will review the construction de novo, without deference to the ITC.
