Lexmark loses DMCA ink cartridge case

Major printer company Lexmark has lost a case in a US court in which it tried to deploy the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) to prevent other companies making cartridges that work with its printers. A lower court had imposed an injunction preventing the sale of Static Control Component chips which would allow any cartridge to work with Lexmark printers. But that decision was toppled by the Sixth Circuit Court today.
