Banner: Lexmark - Passion for wasting cartridges

Last modified: March 22, 2019

The Problem...
Lexmark is a $4 billion high tech company and the 2nd largest printer and toner cartridge manufacturer in the world. Instead of designing their products to be refilled, they add a killer chip. Like Lexmark’s specious ‘Prebate’ that GRRN exposed in 1998, killer chips are designed to prevent smaller ‘aftermarket’ companies from refilling the cartridges. Now Lexmark is suing one of those third parties under a new copyright protection act.
