<quote> but no one can mfr and sell a machine that punctures a k-cup or any other device/cup that would be punctured to make a beverage other than GMCR and their licensees. <end-quote>Who would want to manufacture a machine if it is a losing business? GMCR does not make any money making the brewers - they actually lose money. Why wouldn't SBUX want to capitalize on that.
