As indicated on August 24, 2021, the success of Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, is measured by Our attempt to develop products, goods, and services that are aligned with Our Company's goals and strategies.
Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, to include The Afri Bar, LLC, and the companies we may manage, own, and operate, from time to time may use the World Wide Web, websites, and social media as a form of advertising, marketing, and promotion. The use of the World Wide Web, websites, and social media has been known to create and invite
vulnerabilities in fraud creating unfair competition where employees and consumers can be misled or result in deceptive trade practices that can alter or restrict a company's attempt to engage in the exchange of trade and commerce.

reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute Our content in any media or distribution methods now known or later developed whether that may result in a material change of control or negatively impact Our business operations to the detriment of Our business as an entrant into the field of hospitality, media, and
entertainment thereof.
Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, and the companies we may manage, own, and operate, represent, and warrant that we retain all rights, licenses, consents, permissions, power, and/or authority necessary to the rights of any Content we may submit, post, or display on the World Wide Web, websites, or through social media services and that Our material is subject to copyright, trademark, intellectual, or other proprietary rights as applicable.
While combating fraud and dishonesty in the conduct of trade and commerce, The Afri Bar, LLC, continues to address systemic issues related to the conduct of Our business. This vulnerability to fraud and dishonesty can sometimes result in unsolicited and hostile takeover attempts which can influence the operations of Our organization and influence corporate decision-making hindering our success and long-term goals.
Acts of unfair competition are generally characterized by acts of deception, bad faith, fraud, and oppression severe enough that the victim is thwarted or prevented from successfully engaging in trade. Unfair competition covers many subjects; however, a variety of the most common is trademark infringement, false advertising, unauthorized substitution, bait and switch, the misappropriation of trade secrets, and
rumor-mongering to name a few.
Intellectual property theft refers to the robbing of ideas, inventions, and creative expressions (intellectual property). The most common types of Intellectual Property theft include trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights, and patents. Intellectual Property can include everything from proprietary products, goods, services, and parts, to movies,
music, web content, business processes, inventions, literary, artistic works, symbols, names, images, and designs used in commerce and software that are considered “creations of the mind.” The robbing of intellectual property can result in dishonest and fraudulent rivalries in trade and commerce and damage intellectual property.

Preventing intellectual property theft is a priority for Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, and the companies we may manage, own, and operate. Intellectual property is protected by both state and federal laws and intellectual property theft can result in acts of unjust enrichment and infringement to name a few.
Unfair competition and the effect can negatively impact our business model, severely impacting our goals and strategies resulting in an inferior product limiting our ability to fulfill our Mission Statement. Unfair competition and leaked information can result in a change of control. Such a coercive tactic can negatively impact our business operations, giving our rivals an opportunity to prepare a competitive response to the detriment of our business as a new entrant into the field of hospitality.
The impact of unfair competition goes far beyond Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, and the companies we may manage, own, and operate, including our CEO, Mr. Mitchell. Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, and the companies we may manage, own, and operate, have reasonable grounds to believe that hostile actions or an attempt at a hostile takeover of Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, or any of the companies we may own, operate, and manage, may be present, resulting in acts of intellectual property theft resulting in infringement and unjust enrichment.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) establishes protections for copyright infringement. In 1998, Congress passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which amended U.S. copyright law to address important parts of the relationship between copyright and the internet.
