    TOKYO, Feb 1, 2006 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Canon Inc. has won a key victory as a Japanese court ruled that recycled Canon printer ink cartridges violated the company's patent rights.
    The Intellectual Property High Court ruled the patent holder has the right to prohibit sale of the recycled product, imported from China by Tokyo-based distributor Recycle Assist Co. The court said the product contained a key part from the patented invention that had been altered, the Asahi Shimbun reported Wednesday.
