One of 2015’s biggest stories was the huge number of seizure-and-forfeiture orders issued by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) caught companies trying to import aftermarket ink and toner cartridges in violation of the ITC’s general exclusion orders (GEOs).

Canon is not just experimenting in offering inkjet printers and all-in-ones that use a continuous ink supply system (CISS) in one selected market.
