This is scary and if the supreme court nominee is confirmed then Lexmark will win the case.

Meanwhile don't buy Lexmark Printers.

I'm glad that I sold off my Lexmark printers long ago.

  It's less about Lexmark(most printer manufacturers have tried or are trying to limit products in their printers that they don't manufacture, some class-action lawsuits have already been filed an won on behalf of consumers) and more about the implications for all other products and consumers' freedom of use.  Blatant money grab in a cash cow industry for a struggling company that can't/won't innovate so they want the legal system to shaft consumers.  Will common sense or the almighty dollar prevail?

If this affects Inkjets & it passes. I'll then buy 4-5 complete sets of 5 color cartridges for $4/set before it takes affect. By then hopefully some form of sanity will have prevailed.

Meh. Buy compatibles directly from China. Their officials cannot be bribed as easily as the US Congress and the US Supreme Court.

I guess, Lexmark says if you don't like our rules then don't buy our product.

I hate the notion that an exchange of money for a physical product does not include a license to transfer that physical product to anyone willing to trade for it regardless of its status.

I vote patent exhaustion starts at trade.

I think of the Robots movie. Parts were bought out by the makers of upgrades. Who wants to get fixed!
