It looks like the guys who own the ****** Rig have finally stepped up and gave everybody a piece of their mind! But can they really claim a name? Striper anglers have been using Umbrella Rigs for the longest time, so does that mean that companies can Trade Mark names like “Red Eye Shad” or “Crankbait”? Personally I find it a little crazy with how everything is being handled. For instance, other guys sell Umbrella rigs for $16.99 while the “Original” sells theirs for $27.99. I would imagine theirs sales have dropped but the beautiful thing about being in a sales industry is that you must adjust prices to what are fair and competitive not monopolize an already existent market.
And it seems like even companies like Bassmaster may even be in trouble by the looks of the following snippet from YouTube. Check it out and let us know what you think.
