A federal appeals court has confirmed the validity of several patents for ink jet cartridges belonging to Seiko Epson Corp. and its Epson America unit in Long Beach. Epson claimed inexpensive ink jet cartridges made by Dallas-based Nu-Kote Holdings and its manufacturing affiliate Pelikan Produktions violated Seiko's patents. A federal judge in Los Angeles ruled in 1997 that several of Seiko's patents were unenforceable, but an appeals panel overturned that decision last week.

Epson America Inc., the Torrance-based American headquarters for Seiko Epson Corp. of Japan, told city officials earlier this week that it would pay the entire cost of the 10,000-square-foot garden.

Fuji Photo Film Co., Japan's biggest photo film maker, probably will announce today that it will buy half of Xerox Corp.'s 50% stake in their 39-year-old Japanese joint venture, an industry source said. The imminent deal, which media reports said probably would be valued at $1.5 billion, offers a lifeline to the struggling U.S. copier maker, which in October promised to sell $2 billion to $4 billion in assets to cut its $17 billion corporate debt.
