I might have found a way to bring this back to topic! Thanks for your off-the-cuff comment, PasoDancer. Okay, so to the average person out there, no one really knows or cares what Arthur Murrary or the NDCA are up to with fighting about trademarking World titles. And I'd hazard a guess that a lot of us think that if this actually ended up in court (or arbitration), a reasonable jury or judge would look at this pretty much like we did, that a closed organization trademarking World titles makes little or no sense. So why is a deal being made of this? Because, as PasoDancer said, "any attention is STILL attention." It's like those organizations' way of letting us know that they are out there doing something. Although what it is they are trying to accomplish, I still have no idea, I'm guessing either it was an honest but stupid mistake or that it was a sneaky background move in an ongoing turf war. Although I must admit, to me seeing Arthur Murray and the NDCA go at it is kind of like seeing a snake devour its own tail. I thought the top people in Arthur Murray are the top people in the NDCA.
