Arthur Murray Attacks the Access Ballroom Name
ACCESS BALLROOM DANCE STUDIOS is just tired of the constant attacks from Ms. Patricia Contenta (a.k.a. Patty), owner of Arthur Murray in Laval.
Ever since Mr. Gilfred Bynoe left their employment in 2008, Arthur Murray Montreal Ouest with Mr. Andrew Panasuk & Arthur Murray Laval with Patty Contenta, have been taking illegal actions to try to slow down Access Ballroom Studio’s growth in the dance industry. However, we won’t allow them to hide in the shadows continuing to take such illegal and dishonorable actions.
What have we decided to do about it?
Well, other than having our Lawyer take actions towards them, we’ve decided to go public with it by putting this on our home page. It’s not like we are on Oprah telling our story, but it’s a start. We aren’t going to go into the details with every single attack that they have done on us, but we will talk about one of the most apparent attacks on our name.
Here are the facts about the kind of company sabotage that we’ve been dealing with. 1- Mr. Bynoe was very honest about leaving Arthur Murray to start his own company. Armed with this knowledge, Patricia Contenta, (Owner of Arthur Murray Laval & Sensuality Secrets) bought the Domain names AccessBallroom.com and accessballroomstudio.com before us just so we couldn’t have it.
2- After improving their website they then decided to forward the Access Ballroom Domain names (Accessballroomstudio.com & Accessballroom.com) to their website http://www.arthurmurraymontreal.com/
3- After the advertisement of this post they then decided to remove the forwarding of Access Ballroom Domain names (Accessballroomstudio.com & Accessballroom.com) to their website Jan. 30, 2010. If you click on the link you’ll see that she paid for the name Jan. 08, 2009 and even with my action of turning the other cheek she decided to renew it Jan. 09 2010. The fact that she removed the forwarding Is a step in the right direction, but by owning the domain names bought from Netfirms, she (A representative of Arthur Murray) is still cybersquatting. Until these sites are owned by Access Ballroom Studio ltée, we will not stop going public with Arthur Murray’s Actions.
The First question that comes to mind is; Is that Legal?
No, it isn’t.
What they are doing is called Cybersquatting, which is another form of identity theft. Plus they are breaking these laws; Loi sur la publicité legal Article 13 – paragraph 7, 8 and 9.
Plus Civil Codes Article 6 & 7.
So we ask you these questions to get your opinion
-What does that say about the kind of company that Arthur Murray is?
-Are these actions coming from a company that has integrity?
-Do you think that Cybersquatting is a good business strategy?
We will let you come to your own conclusion. I guess that we should just be proud of the fact that a world wide company such as Arthur Murray considers us such a threat to their survival that they needed to resort to illegal methods just to try and slow us down.
However If you would like to write to her or call her directly on her cell phone to let her know what you think about her actions click Accessballroomstudio.com & Accessballroom.com scroll down and you’ll see that with the actions of buying our domain name, it also leaves the name, address and phone number of who took the illegal action.
