Mr Meakin, set up his award-winning business because he noticed that although printers were fairly cheap for average people, the replacement inks supplied by the manufacturers were not.

He said: “Epson is getting Amazon and eBay to take down thousands of listings nationally, purely on their say-so that these listings are infringing their Intellectual Property rights.

“Putting a big brand in an incredibly powerful position to crush its competition, no questions asked. This is damaging the market and gradually creating a 100 per cent monopoly for Epson.

“Effectively Epson is saying that if a cartridge functions but isn’t made by Epson, then by definition it is infringing their patent.





best of luck to u :)
