Arizona Cartridge Remanufacturers Ass'n v. Lexmark Int'l Inc., 421 F.3d 981 (9th Cir. 2005) (full-text).
Appellate Court Proceedings Edit
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a District Court decision that found that the contract terms on the packaging of a printer cartridge were sufficiently clear to act as a "box-wrap" license, such that when the user opens the box he or she is accepting the terms and forming a contract. Because the printer cartridge is patented, Lexmark can impose post-sale conditions on purchasers such as prohibiting the refilling of the cartridge.
