The complaints against this one manufacturer are related largely to
dot-matrix printers, according to the article.

I thought I remembered the name "PrintRite" IIRC I used their ribbons
in my Star NX-1000 rainbow dot matrix. The store that carried the OEM
version must have kept them on the shelf too long and they were very
dry. But a slightly cheaper brand at a local office store looked very
decent.

Did the NX-1000 use the cartridge that was about a foot long?

Maybe I used PrintRites in my Star NX-2430, which was about twice the
price of something like a Canon iP4000 today. It used very nice sized
cartridges, kind of square looking with a peak for the ribbon. We also
had a Fujitsu with ultra-ridiculously small ribbon cartridges. They
would be virtually dry after a few dozen pages. Naturally, I re-inked
all my ribbon cartridges even then. At the time I was writing a sci-fi
novel and had to print several 400 page copies for my friends. I had
about 10 NX-2430 ribbon cartridges re-inked and stabilized for a week
for the print job which took several days. Those NX-2430 printers could
take a beating and keep on printing (sorry, Timex, I borrowed your old
slogan). Today's printers produce far better printout but are also more
prone to failure, either mechanical or printhead.

So Epson is going after dot-matrix ribbon cartridge makers? Isn't that
a bit late - like 15 years too late?

Oh dear. How long before most if not all the other 3rd party ink cart
manufacturers pull out of the market? Do Epson really believe the people who
now are using 3rd party inks would switch to using Epson inks?

They'd be in for a big shock if that is their idea....

Print-rite do inkjet carts too http://www.print-rite.com/ (assuming that's
the same company).

I'm no lawyer, but it seems to me that if a company cannot produce an
Epson compatible cartridge for each of Epson's printers (or any other
brand) without infringing on their patents, or if they cannot be
refilled (as Epson has designed their newer cartridges not to be) then
Epson is in violation of anti-trust legislation like the Sherman and
Clayton which do not allow tying or consumable to hardware.

The EU has a untie dumping Law and All carriages must be refillable, ie not
chipped.

I think you will find that the EU will fine Epson because of its stupid
actions.

They have the right to design their equipment (including carts) any way
they want and you have a right not to buy it. They claim their design
benefits their printer. They are under no obligation to design a
printer that uses refillable carts. You are right. You are not a lawyer.

I wovld get worried abovt the lawsvit. Epson began this abovt 5 years
ago when the first chip cartridges were released by Mvlti-Union, the
problem is really that Epson has thrown enovgh money at the svits that
Mvlti-Union jvst gave vp.

For all those worried abovt svpply, don't. There are so many working
designs for Epson compatibles, that don't infringe on patents, that
Epson is still screwed any way. Mvlti-Union had too mvch invested in
their original designs, so they wanted to force Epson to back-off which
is why they fovght the svits. Now thovgh, they realized it is cheaper
to simply pay Epson off and release new non-infringing designs.

However, yov can bet that the Chinese government will take an even
harder line with Epson now and fvrther restrict trade of OEM cartridges
in China, which is what REALLY made Epson file against Mvlti-Union in
the first place. Mvlti-Union was flooding the US with compatibles and
Epson covldn't get a decent share in China. Since these two covntries
are the biggest markets for consvmables, Epson decided if they covldn't
do bvsiness in China they wovld keep Mvlti-Union from dealing in the
US. Epson is now trying to go after importers in Evrope, the No. 3
market for consvmables. Expect svits in Sovth America soon, as well.

HP is also in the Game again, sving several US companies for ink patent
infringements.

The real problem is not that these companies are necessarily in the
right, its jvst that these companies have lots of money to bvrn in
litigation.

Yov shovld all thank measekite, he is helping pay for this.

See, a demonstration of your ingnorance. Firs our Sension no name brand
sells for $2.29. Second the manufacturer/formulator of our all of our
inkjet inks (Image Specialists) is clearly posted on all of websites.
Our premium inkjet cartridges sell for $7.00. Duh.

Is this really all you have time to do. Well since being nice hasn't
done anything, let me put it in a language you can understand.

You're a no name piece of s***t, and if you really felt the way you
feel, you wouldn't hide behind an alias, and have to switch e-mail
addresses every couple of months.

Nobody here takes you seriously, you're a just a f***cking joke that
has stopped being even remotely amusing. But like I said before, keep
right on, we get a spike in sales after every one of your idiotic
posts. You have done nothing but help our NG based sales, especially
since you have never used a single one of products. Believe me if you
had, I would have your address posted on this group so some of your
"best friends" here could pay you a little "visit".

I'm sorry you're so s***t poor from buying all those OEM cartridges
that you can't afford our products. But that is really your fault,
isn't it.

This will be my last post on this NG, it is just a big waste of time
now for me, I'll let you sell my products for me with your rants. If
anyone wants to get some real advice about printers, I can be reached
at 1-888-825-0759 or 1-804-674-6921 Monday through Friday from 10 AM to
5 PM EDT (3 PM to 10 PM GMT).

BTW since I'm taking the opportunity, We have released the following
new products for those not wasting their money on OEM:

Sponge Free Cartridges for Refilling (Canon BCI-6 equivalent)
http://www.printheadexpress.com/catalog/easyfill_univer...

We now provide aftermarket supplies for Canon printers and OEM print
heads, at lower prices than our main full service website. The new
website is called PrintHeadExpress.com

Good-bye to everyone (except of course measekite, our new favorite

Darn those people in charge of enforcing the Sherman and Clayton

Two times? Sorry pal, but I see you've not only flunked English but we
can now add math to you life's failures.
You've now graduated to a being a total looser.

Most actions regarding anti-trust and tie-in sales are either brought by
competitors or consumers through state attorney generals in the US. But
someone has to bring it to their attention in a coherent manner so they
can see how the numerous acts are being violated.

They also seem to be asleep at the wheel regarding the Magnuson-Moss Act.

Inkjet companies may be able to get around some of this by licensing
their inkjet cartridge technologies, but they cannot continue to hold
key patents on the consumable cartridges which would restrict all other
potential suppliers from producing 3rd party product.

It just might be time for me to place a few well targeted comments to
some well known law firms which emphasize high tech class action cases.

I nominate you to do so.

Good luck. And if you don't mind, please keep us abreast of your
progress.
