I was checking my email now when I found an email from J.B. (I wonâ€™t write her name to protect her privacy) the Corporate/Group Sales Administrator at the Canadian National Exhibition asking me in a very polite manner to remove the post I had on the Canadian National Exhibition reduced ticket prices and also remove the CNE logo.
Here’s the letter:
Dear â€œBoo Radleyâ€:
Kindly remove the CNE logo and corporate code information from your website as the use of these items is unauthorized.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Corporate/Group Sales Administrator
Canadian National Exhibition
I understand the code I posted is especially for corporate customers so I will remove it today as she requested.
What I donâ€™t comprehend, is why J.B.â€™s asking me to remove the Canadian National Exhibition logo? . This is an exhibition all of us Canadian are proud ofâ€¦ why canâ€™t we get to promote it and spread the word? The CNE logo I posted had CNEâ€™s date and website address. This logo did nothing more than promote and provide some sort of free advertising for the CNE. How would removing it help CNE?
When I posted about the Canadian National Exhibition I was very thrilled (youâ€™ll notice I added two smiley faces which I donâ€™t often do). Iâ€™m disappointed that this exhibition has turned from something all Canadians pride and cherish to yet another commercial production. I will remove the logo and I donâ€™t care about the CNE anymore.
and J.B. if you read this (and you probably will), let me give you some advice before you contact someone else:
- I suggest you donâ€™t use your sympatico.ca email address because there is no way of verifying whether you really work at the CNE. Use a username@TheEx.com
- Your email was short and to the point but a word of motivation thanking the blogger for promoting the CNE for nothing in return but goodwill would have been nice.
