2011 USGTF声明

Declaration

 

It has recently come to our attention that three organizations in the names of European Golf Teachers Federation (EGTF), World Golf Federation (WGF) and American Golf Teachers Federation (AMGTF) (together “Organizations”) had been actively promoting and conducting training and certification courses for golf teaching professionals in China.

According to the information we obtained, these Organizations deliberately used names which are confusingly similar to the United States Golf Teachers Federation (USGTF), founded in USA in 1989, and the World Golf Teachers Federation (WGTF), which are the largest teaching professional federations in the world, with establishments in over 40 countries and over 19,000 members around the world.

Moreover, these Organizations represented themselves as having association with or otherwise connected to USGTF and WGTF and further copied the logo, setup, structure, syllabus and curriculum of USGTF so as to confuse the market and take advantage of the well developed reputation of USGTF and WGTF.

The truth is none of the Organizations have any relationship or association with USGTF and WGTF. Neither have they been authorized by USGTF and WGTF to use their registered logo or to conduct any training courses in China or, indeed, anywhere else in the worldAny representations made by the Organizations to the effect that they are associated or connected with USGTF and WGTF are manifestly false.

We have already engaged our legal advisors to review the situation including possible infringement of USGTF logo. We are considering taking legal action against the infringers should they continue with their wrongful practices and false representations.

We hereby declare that the Organizations, namely, EGTF, WGF and AMGTF, have no connection and are not associated with USGTF and WGTF. We hope the general public, in particular, the participants in the golf industry and people who are interested to receive professional training in golf teaching will not be confused, misled and deceived by these Organizations.

 声明

 

本会发现最近有三家机构,名称European Golf Teachers Federation (EGTF)World Golf Federation (WGF) and American Golf Teachers Federation (AMGTF),在中国非常活跃,推广和寻找一些培训中心合作举办高尔夫教练培训课程。

剧我们收到的消息,这三家机构对外声称与全球最大, 认证教练会员最多的高球教练联盟,United States Golf Teachers Federation (USGTF) World Golf Teachers Federation (WGTF)是关系机构。事实是这三家机构与USGTFWGTF没有任何关系,也没有业务往来,他们的声称是不真实的和有误导大众之嫌。USGTF成立于1989年和WGTF是一家真正的全球教练联盟,拥有40个分支机构分布世界各地和超过19,000名会员。

这三家机构故意采用与USGTFWGTF相似的机构名字,用意和目的是明显的,他们希望混淆视听,扰乱市场,利用USGTFWGTF在全球高球界经过二十多年的不断努力所建立和享有的商誉来争取他们的最大利益。再者,他们的机构从成立开始就模仿和抄袭USGTFWGTF的结构及课程安排等,并抄袭USGTF的注册商标。

本会正就此事质询法律意见,如果这三家机构继续他们的侵权行为,我们将会考虑在适当的时后采取行动以保护本会的合法权益。

本会特此郑重声名,EGTFWGFAMGTFUSGTFWGTF是完全不同的机构,没有任何关系和业务联系。在此,我们希望大众,高球界人士和有志于从事教练行业的人士认清事实,不要被一些不诚实的机构所蒙骗。
