I was doing some searching on Strike King and other name brand companies and noticed this. Who the heck is Braxton McNaughton??

He's actually suing alot of people, lol.

Plaintiff: Braxton McNaughton

Defendants: Strike King Lure Company, Northland Fishing Tackle LLC, Pure Fishing Inc, Big Bite Baits Inc, Venom Manufacturing & Distributing Company Inc, Mizmo Inc, Jackall LLC, Yum Bait Company, Jann's Netcraft LLC, Outkast Tackle Inc, Classic Fishing Products Inc, Poor Boy's Baits Inc, Xcite Baits LLC, *** and D & J Plastics Inc


Thats pretty insane. Does this guy think he can take on people like Berkely. I just thought it was pretty crazy what does everyone else think??

35:145 Patent Infringement is the complaint.

Here Is The Link!!!

I would love to hear what everyone thinks about this. One guy takes on multiple companies. Big Companies, Small Companies, Garage Ran Companies. What a joke!!!

I don't think we will get much out of Brent on this. He's to professional to respond to one guys antics, lol.

Plus not a good idea to air it out when its not finished. I'm guessing its not finished since it was file on April 9th, 2010.

I e-mail Brent all the time and I had to find it out during a Search, lol. Plus I tried asking him and he said its not his place to put it out there.

Good guy Brent Is!!

You know what, I was actually thinking...All this guy did was prove that Xcite Baits, and other small companies that were named...have a great product.

I mean he's obviously right in there with companies such as Strike King, Berkely, and YUM right?? Why else would he be getting sued with them, lol.

The guy holds three patents:
-an injection molding system for multi-color plastics (2003)
-two for soft plastic lures (2007, 2009)

No details are listed, as yet, in PACER, beyond "patent infringement".

McNaughton is the founder of Netbait.  The patents sound manufacturing related.

Pretty ridiculous either way. Why would you wait until multiple people were using them to sue...sounds like to me he sat on it and waited so he could sue more people.

Why didn't he sue the first person who copied it instead of waiting until he could sue multiple companies.

He just wants to make money without actually having to work. I guess business was bad this year.

You might want to watch this case because it could have a far reaching impact on many more companies.  There was a rumor Andre Moore had considered a similar suit some years back but he had no intentions of dragging a civil suit on for year after year.  If this complaint goes beyond summary judement and actually goes to trial it might last 10 years or more.  Interesting.  I would think someone is looking for a quick out of court settlement from the defendants named.  Just a guess.
