Nespresso Rival Removes Nexpod Capsules from Shelves

Denner who markets Nexpod in Switzerland has been told to remove the Nexpod - a fill your own coffee capsule from store shelves. Following the clarification of a court ruling, Denner is talking with lawyers about the possibility of marketing the product again. Denner, which is owned by the cooperative Migros, had continued to sell the capsules after the June ruling as it was unclear—before the latest clarification—whether or not the ruling had reintroduced the ban.

"Denner will of course respect the existing legal prohibition again and take the capsules off the shelves for the time being," said Denner spokeswoman Nicole Schoewel.

This is interesting stuff, as most of the patent wars in the single serve coffee world have been well - successful for the patent holder, but most of the aftermarket make your own coffee capsule stuff has been left untouched. Perhaps the design of this product is too close to the patent? We'll keep up with this story to see if Nexpod goes back on sale in Switzerland.
