Coffee patent wars over?

Drinks Business Review writes: The Procter & Gamble Company, or P&G, has reached a settlement with Kraft Foods regarding P&G patents to plastic packaging for roast and ground coffee.

There is a quote:

Steve Jemison, P&G's chief legal officer, said: "We are delighted by the terms of this settlement and will not hesitate to do what it takes to continue to protect our intellectual property."

At the time the settlement was reached, J. M. Smucker owned Folgers: In November 2008, P&G completed the sale of its Folgers Coffee business to The JM Smucker Company.
