Memjet has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Hewlett-Packard Company in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. The lawsuit alleges infringement of eight Memjet patents related to its Waterfall printing technology.

Memjet’s lawsuit also claims it is entitled to recover damages resulting from HP’s use of patented technology in HP's PageWide printer products.

The HP PageWide products using the patented technology, according Memjet, include HP’s Pro X generation of office printers, the T-Series commercial presses, and PageWide XL series products. Memjet also points to HP statements around its intention to use PageWide Technology  in future wide-format and 3D printers.
