Printer Manufacturers Being Sued Criminally In France

The People versus Printers: A New Saga in Planned Obsolescence


"Printer manufacturers are being challenged in a revolutionary French criminal lawsuit.

“The case comes against the four manufacturers that dominate the French market: HP, Canon, Epson and Brother. The environmental association group Halte à l’Obsolescence Programmée (Stop Planned Obsolescence) are alleging that these companies build ink cartridges which “use an electronic technique designed to reduce the lifespan of the cartridge.” HOP believe these ink cartridges are designed to stop working when there is still 20% of the ink left.”
