Won’t “they” Void my Warranty for using compatible cartridges?
We have established that compatible ink and toner cartridges are the most environmentally friendly way to go for your office, but you don’t want to give up your warranty. Well, the original equipment manufacturer of your printer cannot void your warranty for the use of re-manufactured cartridges. The Magnus-Moss Act of 1975 protects consumers from manufacturers by declaring that a manufacturer cannot void a warranty based on use of compatible parts. This is the same law that protects you when you buy a ‘lemon’ car. If you would like to know more visit the Federal Trade Commission at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/buspubs/warranty.shtm
