Canon engages in extensive research and development so that it can deliver innovative and valuable products to customers all over the world. Through its research and development efforts, Canon has obtained a large and robust portfolio of patents. In order to protect its many innovations, Canon enforces its patents against various toner cartridge designs that Canon believes infringe its patent rights.

While Canon had previously filed infringement reports with Amazon.com based on Canon's U.S. Patent No. 8,688,008 against compatible cartridges having the same relevant structure as genuine HP toner cartridge models CF217, and CF230, these latest reports were based on Canon's U.S. Pat. No. 11,314,199, which covers alternative designs.

Throughout the development, sales and marketing process, Canon respects the intellectual property of other companies and individuals and expects others to similarly respect Canon's intellectual property rights. Canon remains committed to pursuing legal enforcement against those who do not respect Canon's intellectual property.
