CSU, L.L.C. v. Xerox Corp.

United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
203 F.3d 1322 (2000)


Xerox Corporation (Xerox) (defendant) held patents on parts of its copy machines and copyrights to related manuals and software. CSU, LLC (CSU) (plaintiff) was an independent servicer of Xerox equipment. Xerox refused to sell its copiers' parts, manuals, or software to independent copier service organizations unless a given servicer was also an end user of the relevant copier. Xerox accordingly refused to sell certain parts, manuals, and software to CSU. CSU brought suit against Xerox, alleging that Xerox’s conduct violated the Sherman Act. The United States District Court for the District of Kansas granted Xerox summary judgment. CSU appealed.
