Epson wants to ban third-party ink sale on eBay

Printer ink is more expensive than gold so it's not hard to understand why some printer manufacturers want to curb sales of third-party ink. HP's efforts to make it harder to use third-party ink drew a lot of criticism and now Epson is generating bad press as the company issued takedown notices to ban third-party printer cartridges sales on eBay:
EPSON HAS become the latest printer company to attempt a ban on third-party printer cartridges, asking eBay to issue takedown notices for sellers under the site's VeRO programme.

VeRO or "Verified Right Owner Programme" is eBay's way of protecting intellectual copyright, and Epson is registered with trusted status.

According to the Open Rights Group (ORG), all a member has to do is ask for the removal of a listing which they "believe may infringe on their intellectual property rights", without actually requiring proof.
