Save Brighouse Ritz's Identity
The Ritz Ballroom is a small music and dance venue in Brighouse, West Yorkshire. Despite having "Ritz" in its name for 80 years it has been threatened with legal action by The Ritz Hotel in London if it doesn't change its name and hand over rights to the website and social media domain names. It is not a hotel, is not a threat to the hotel's business and is over 200 miles away. Even it's website: www.liveattheritz.com is clearly not easily confused with the hotel's website.
They cannot afford to change the name and all the re-branding that goes with it. This is purely a case of bullying and should not be allowed to happen.
Please take a minute to sign the petition and don't forget to share it on your Facebook and Twitter pages so we can show the hotel how ridiculous their actions are.
