I reported about Canon suing grey market retailers (see here too). Now Photography Bay, who first broke the news with this story, reports that one of the sued companies, GetItDigital, answered to Canon, denying all of the alleged wrongdoings mentioned by Canon.
Basically, and according to Photography Bay, GetItDigital mentions three defenses against Canon:
- Defense #1 – First Sale Doctrine
- Defense #2 – Laches (Laches is a trusty common law defense)
- Defense #3 – Acquiescence/Estoppel (similar to laches, estoppel is another old common law defense)
