Resellers and distributors in Europe should watch out: Trading newbuilts that infringe patents will cost you dearly !
ETIRA works hard against the flood of cheap newbuilt patent-infringing non-OEM cartridges from SE Asia. Since 2012, HP, Samsung and other OEM’s launched serious legal action against resellers, distributors etc. across Europe who stocked newbuilt non-OEM cartridges that infringe OEM patents.
And in July 2012, police raided a warehouse in Germany where workers fitted OEM labels on thousands of non OEM-cartridges. The owners are now in jail ! At the Paperworld trade shows in January 2013 and 2014, several newbuilts were removed by customs officials on account of infringing OEM-patents.
So make sure that you only sell cartridges that have been remanufactured in accordance with the law, or newbuilts that respect legitimate patents.
Hard to tell which is which ? Not anymore. ETIRA just developed the ideal tool for you.
Our “Guide to Clones” identifies the different types of cartridges present in the European marketplace today, and warns you for the pitfalls.

The Guide is available in 12 languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Swedish, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Russian, Bulgarian and Chinese.
