Hi Pit, I saw this rollin' today, and I think it's a rather good idea.

Link.

Basically, it's a petition to make it illegal for printer cartridge manufacturers to make cartridges that are designed to be difficult/impossible to refill (hence fucking over our wallets and our environment since it's cheaper to buy a new printer than new cartridges). Sign plz?

The slogan 'Buy an inkjet cartridge and get a free printer' is not far from the truth. The reason is that manufacturers employ increasingly sophisticated techniques to ensure that only their highly overpriced replacement cartridges can be used in their printers. The result is that hundreds of thousands of servicable printers are scrapped every year in the UK because it is more economic to buy a new printer than replacement cartridges. This wastage is environmentally indefensible. Legislation should be introduced requiring manufacturers to provide simple ink tanks on their printers which can be filled with ink from a bottle for less than 10% of the cost of current replacement cartridges.

There are more pressing matters at hand than ink cartridges.

TBH, I'd rather pay more for a printer and less for ink.
But then again, i don't own a printer, because I rarely, if ever, require to use one right now.

WTF in sign?

Also, there is a guy who comes in to my local electrical store every second month on the first cause it is more expensive to buy ink rather than a whole new printer.

My Epson printer requires me to go on an expedition to get new ink when I need it. The whole idea of the ink cartridge has been environmentally unsound from the beginning, and really fucking expensive.

Surely the ink cartridge petition stands a better chance of making something happen
#28
I signed, because cartridges are way overpriced, even though there are slightly more pressing matters at hand.
