PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) -- Hewlett-Packard Co. said Friday that it has received a favorable ruling from the U.S. International Trade Commission on the sale and importation of inkjet printer cartridges that infringe on its patents.
The ITC found that MicroJet Technology Co. violated HP's patents and that Asia Pacific Microsystems contributed to the infringement, HP said.
"HP is pleased with the outcome on these matters and the ITC's pursuit of legal enforcement against practices that violate intellectual property rights," said Andy Binder, director at HP's Inkjet and Web Solutions Market Development, Imaging and Printing Group.
HP filed a complaint with the ITC last June, seeking to ban imports of ink cartridges that it said infringed on its patents.
Shares of HP fell 21 cents to $35.25 during the regular session.
