Re: Wilson suing Monsta
I see a few issues with this...one by the very definition of a "two piece" bat ANY handle you use unless made of alloy is going to flex. You are basically saying you can patent a handle... for example, Blackberry sued multiple companies (Facebook, Twitter, etc) because their original owner had a series of broad patents that vaguely referenced similar styles of technology. I believe if they patented the composition of the handle, or the specific materials mixed for making a handle...maybe, but just because you have a flexible handle...um..why didn't Wilson sue, Miken, Worth and Easton then? All the USSSA and ASA bats have handles that flex...they simply don't advertise build to order handle + barrel combinations.
Secondly, I like Joe, do not see ANY mention of the FIB technology. To my knowledge you would have to prove that in some way the FIB technology utilized the End Cap technology...which I do not see here.
Carl is not stupid, and frankly he's done a good job with his engineering...the issue (to my thinking) is going to be the amount of money he will have to spend to defend himself... NOW...if he DOES then Wilson might be on the hook for ALOT of legal fees...
But to me... this looks like a pretty thin grounds lawsuit...but I am not an attorney...
