Lexmark loses DMCA legal bid

Lexmark has failed in its attempt to wield the Digital Millennium Copyright Act against a small company that offered a way to let customers use refilled toner cartridges.

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear Lexmark's petition to seek review of its defeat before a federal appeals court, Static Control said this week. Static Control makes the "Smartek" chip that Lexmark claims violates the DMCA.
