A win for the reprocessing industry today! U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of Impression Products, Inc.

AMDR is thrilled to announce that our efforts at the U.S. Supreme Court – where we joined advocacy groups, non-profits and many leading technology companies and filed an amicus curiae brief in support of Impression Products – have been successful. Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Impression Products (Impression Products Inc. vs. Lexmark, Inc.), reinforcing the long standing importance of the first sale/patent exhaustion doctrine, which makes it possible for the reprocessing industry – and many other commercial products –  to remain available to consumers.  Read the full Supreme Court ruling here. Public Knowledge offers analysis of the ruling here. For a look back at the case’s relevance, check out Fortune’s article from March 2017.
