At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone whose HP printer blocked them from using non-HP ink after a firmware update.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys are looking into whether HP pushed out firmware updates to its printers that illegally blocked consumers from using non-HP ink. If so, it’s possible a class action lawsuit could be filed over HP’s potentially anticompetitive practices.
How Could a Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit could help consumers get back money for the lost value of the non-HP ink they purchased and for having to pay for more expensive HP ink. It could also force HP to roll back any firmware updates that are found to be anticompetitive.
