Canon wins lawsuit against eBay counterfeiters

Canon has won a lawsuit against two defendants over the illegal sale of counterfeit versions of its products on eBay.

The judge in the case – heard in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, awarded an injunction against the pair – Joey Fang and Kyung “Kay” Kwak – preventing them from infringing and counterfeiting Canon trademarks.

As part of the resolution, the defendants also paid a significant amount of money to Canon for their unlawful activities, which involved distributing counterfeit Canon camera batteries. The company warns that counterfeit camera accessories – specifically counterfeit batteries, chargers, or external flashes – carry a real risk of injury or damage to camera equipment.

“Canon aggressively pursues counterfeiters in the US and around the world to protect its customers from spurious and potentially unsafe products which unlawfully use the Canon name,” said the company in a statement.
