Consumers allege that Epson America Inc. engaged, and continues to engage, in a systematic campaign of disabling Epson printers when the owner attempts to use non-Epson ink cartridges in an effort to improperly and illegally quash competition from third-party manufacturers.
Epson allegedly designed and delivered software and/or firmware updates to Epson printers that purposely disabled those printers with non-Epson printer cartridges installed. Epson ink cartridges, which are significantly more expensive than third-party cartridges, have been proven to be the only compatible cartridge in which Epson failed to disclose this to consumers.
