MAGENETIX VS NIKKEN
IMAGINETIX VS NIKKEN LAWSUIT $10 MILLION GOES ON LIKE SOAP OPERA

1. First the little guy Imagenetix  sued Nikken for Patent violations. Then August 15, 2011, Imagenetix filed a voluntary dismissal with the district court for nine of the ten defendants (including all of the individual distributors and all of the Nikken officers, employees, product developers, and product spokesmen), and then got the district court to stay the entire lawsuit pending the patent re-examination in #3 below with the PTO Board and Three judge panel.

2. Nikken news release. We are pleased pleased to announce that on January 12, 2012, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) reexamined Imagenetix’s patent, U.S. Patent No. 5,569,676, and rendered its final decision, rejecting Imagenetix’s patent claims. The USPTO found that Imagenetix’s supporting declarations were insufficient and its arguments were misdirected. Ed. Note: Whoops!! see next paragraph

3.  Per appeal  by Imagenetix U.S. PTO Board and Three judge panel reverses rejection above in #2 June 2013

4. November 25 2013 Imagenetix submits case reinstatement against Nikken in U.S. FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA.  ED NOTE: We will keep you posted!

LIST OF DISTRIBUTORS IN LAWSUIT TOO
WOW! THE LARGEST MLM LAWSUIT EVER FILED! 2.75 BILLION DOLLARS!
Rod Cook Editors Note: As soon as this hit our inbox from a reporter we tried to call our contact at Monavie. At the time of this posting, we are waiting for a Monavie press release.  What is different about this lawsuit is that it is filed against (1) Monavie-Monarch, the company and (2)most alarming..... against top distributors to include 1-10,000.  Now let's understand that lawsuits occur with successful MLM companies on a regular basis.  The big difference with this lawsuit is the scope of trademark violation goes down to leaders 10,000 levels deep in the binary and it is the biggest amount EVER for a lawsuit in the MLM world!
