Town buys trademark rights to ‘Okie Noodling’

Pauls Valley, Okla., home to the iconic Okie Noodling Championship for the past 15 years, has purchased the event’s copyrights from Bradley Beasley, the filmmaker who made the event world famous through his documentary, “Okie Noodling,” released in 2001. At last week’s meeting city, council members approved the purchase for $50,000, based on the estimation of what Beasley made in merchandising. Pauls Valley Daily Democrat.
