Hilton Hospitality, Inc.

February 2005: "Hilton is the proud flagship brand of Hilton Hotels Corporation and the most recognized name in the global lodging industry. Conrad Hilton purchased his first hotel in Cisco, Texas back in 1919. Since that time we have grown to over 500 hotels in cities all over the world."http://www.hilton.com/en/hi/brand/about.jhtml
February 2005: And, since history repeats itself, so must I. I owe it to anyone checking into a Hilton-owned hotel expecting to use the hotel-provided broadband service. One reader staying at a Hampton Inn on a skiing trip took the time to read the HHC (Hilton Hotels Corporation) high-speed Internet access agreement. In it he found a lot of language I thought was long gone, including: "You agree that HHC shall own all Information. By using the Service, you voluntarily, expressly and knowingly acknowledge and agree with all of the foregoing and further agree to each and all of the following: (I) such Information belongs to HHC and is not personal or private proprietary information; (ii) such Information, wherever collected, may be processed, used, reproduced, modified, adapted, translated, used to create derivative works, shared, published and distributed by HHC in its sole and absolute discretion in any media and manner irrevocably in perpetuity in any location throughout the universe..."http://weblog.infoworld.com/foster/2005/02/10.html#a215
