    The Canon name and logo is officially registered as trademarks in various countries around to allow formal surveillance of suspected counterfeited products.

    Canon cooperates with various online platforms, authorities and international organizations on the enforcement of intellectual property rights and education on how to identify counterfeit Canon products.

    Why Buy Genuine Supplies and Accessories

    • Counterfeit Canon inkjet cartridges, ink tanks, toner and toner cartridges can create a risk of, among other things, poor equipment performance, including low toner/ink yield, inferior print quality and toner / ink leakage. 
    • Counterfeit Canon batteries and chargers are often not equipped with certain protective devices meeting Canon's and the electronic industry's basic quality standards, causing product malfunctions, or leading such batteries to overheat, leak liquids, ignite and / or explode.
    • Genuine Canon supplies and accessories are manufactured under strict quality standards to ensure that consumers enjoy the full potential of their Canon products.
