Lexmark suffers setback in DMCA case

More Info: http://www.scc-inc.com/SccVsLexmark
Lexmark suffered a new setback in its case against a company called Static Control Components (SCC) envolving technology designed to allow use of generic cartridges in printers. The US Courts of Appeals, Sixth Circuit denied a request to consider reimposing a injunction against SCC. In 2002, Lexmark filed a lawsuit claiming that SCC’s Smartek chips violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Later, a judge issued a preliminary injunction banning the selling of Smartek chips, but this was lifted in October 2004. The case is going to trial next December.
