SafeDrive Technology Cleared By U.S. Customs

by Imaging Solution Bureau

Static Control has received a ruling from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which states that products containing SafeDrive Technology do not infringe upon the dongle gear patents that were the focus of a GEO issued last year.


The letter, signed by Charles R.Steuart, chief of the Intellectual Property Division, states: “The redesigned toner cartridges and drum units to be imported by Static Control, do not infringe upon the ‘278, ‘564, ‘215, ‘008 and ‘009 patents. As such, the instant cartridges and drum units are not subject to exclusion from entry for consumption into the United States, entry for consumption from a foreign-trade zone, or withdrawal from a warehouse for consumption.”

Static Control’s patented designs center on a retractable mechanism that works with the interior geometry of the printer to engage and disengage; both lever and button designs are patented and covered by this ruling.
