Chico, CA asked in Contracts, Intellectual Property, Consumer Law and Internet Law for California

Q: A Los Angeles based hosting company without warning denied 100k customers access to their intangible personal property.

The company the 100K customers contracted with is called AlphaRacks. AlphaRacks contracted with a company called QuadraNet to provide the actual computer servers. Those two companies have some type of dispute. Without warning on 5/16/19, QuadraNet disconnected access for all of AlphaRacks customers. It is one issue to not having working service but they are also denying us access to our intangible personal property aka the intellectual property of our data. I believe QuadraNet has a legal obligation to make a reasonable effort to allow us access to recover our personal property. Hypothetical, If QuadraNet was leasing Alpharacks space for an automobile parking business and I pay Alpharacks to park my car for one month and then the two companies have a dispute. Quadranet can lock the parking lot and not allow me to recovery my car indefinitely, take possession, sale or destroy my car?

A: The only way to solve this problem is to read all the written contracts made between the two warring companies and then read all the contracts made between you and whichever company you had a contractual relationship with. If you think there is a class action hiding in these facts, hire a lawyer
