Are there any modern/contemporary dancers out there who teach or practice Pilates.....either matwork or on apparatus? I wonder if you all heard about the recent court ruling regarding the use of Pilates name, the fact that the judge ruled against the trademarking/exclusive use of the name, stating something like Pilates exercise is too generic to be classified as an exclusive technique, and as such, cannot be designated as a protected/specific form of training. I am poorly paraphrasing this, and refer anyone who's interested to the article in Dance Magazine, January, 2001. If anyone has any further info, please post it!!!?!?! What effect will this have on the Pilates system, training?
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
