WARRANTY IMPROVEMENT ACT
No warranter of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty
of such product on the consumer’s using, in connection with such product, any article
or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms
of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name; except that
the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if:
1. The warranter satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function
properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with
the warranted product, and
2. The Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest.
How This Affects You!
The use of our printer cartridges does not void your printer warranty. The manufacturer of the printer you are using cannot void the warranty on your printer
because you use a cartridge or refill kit manufactured by someone other than the
printer manufacturer. This prohibition includes the use of compatible cartridges
and re-manufactured cartridges.
U.S. law also prohibits the manufacturers of your equipment from requiring the use
of OEM ink or toner or charging extra fees if you use products other than OEM products
with their equipment. Those requirements and/or fees are in violation of existing
The Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Acts
IBM vs. The United States
(The Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Law)
The Supreme Court (IBM vs. The United States) held that IBM could not threaten customers with termination of their data processing equipment leases just because they did
not use supplies manufactured by IBM. Such practice constituted a tying agreement
and was found to be in violation of the Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Law.
