Supreme Court rebuffs Lexmark in toner cartridge fight

I posted about this back in February.

Lexmark had asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review its DMCA claim after being rebuffed by lower courts, but the high court rejected the claim without comment because it was filed late, according to Lexmark. The decision means the high court will now not hear the case anytime soon.

It serves them right. The way they make their printers, as well as the Dell branded printers, all but impossible to replace the ink on unless you buy Lexmark ink/buy a new printer is just absurd. That and the DMCA needs to die. Companies like Lexmark try to use it as a crutch.

I can't stand Lexmark printers. None I have had the displeasure to use have printed anything worthwhile.
