David Leacraft bought a Canon PIXMA MG2522 All-in-One printer from Walmart in March and was mad when his device was unable to scan or fax when it ran out of ink. Of course the scanning and the Mission faxes do not require ink.
Leacraft would not have bought the Canon printer if he had known this, his lawyer says team. Feeling cheated, Leacraft sued Canon USA.
"There is no reason to sell All-In-One printers with scanning or faxing functions that are directly related to the existence or level of ink contained in the devices," Leacraft said in a statement.PDF], filed last week in federal court in New York.
”Ink is not required for scanning or mode of fax Ink does not improve scanning or faxing performance. Tying the scanning or faxing capabilities of All-In-One printers to the ink contained in the devices provides no benefit and only serves to financially harm consumers.”
