Federal Court Witnesses the First Ever Dispute between Online Dating Sites
An argument within the Federal Court, has of late, started involving a pair of major internet dating sites.
The dispute between Anastasiadate and EM Online has come up over illegal competition, illegal use of Anastasia’s brand, false advertisement and so on. The proceedings are being heard in the Manhattan Federal Court.
“The Complaintant offers an international online dating service which, for a small fee, matches guys in the USA with women situated in the Russian Federation and Ukraine. NYC has the most important market for Anastasia”, the plaintiff declares. “Thus, both web pages concentrate on the similar region, consequently both of these are competing for the same customers, with regards to the U.S Market. “Upon information and belief, Elena’s Models runs or sponsors webpages titled ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com.'”. Both these websites disguise the identity of their owners by using a proxy service. To make matters much more suspicious, these websites redirect whomever is viewing them to elenasmodels.com. These websites accuse Anastasiadate of thoroughly perpetuating frauds and deceitful deceptions upon its clients, and then recommend that the clients use Elena’s Models, which allegedly does not follow these practices. “The anastasiadatefraud.com website is intended to reveal and uncover emails composed by the girls who have accounts on Anastasiadate.com. The email messages are all recurring, and report that females shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women searching for love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they’re just ladies who are paid out to talk with men The emails from the women are plainly fake, making these claims false. Anastasiadate’s clients are guaranteed that the women they’re chatting with are 100% authentic women.”
Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud aren’t true, and had the emails written specifically to harm Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. As outlined by Anastasia, Elena’s Models is making use of its other site, ruadventures.com, to harm other businesses and promote its very own, in an exceedingly unfair manner. “While attempting to hide beneath the cover of an independent, impartial forum site, ruadventures.com actually selectively picks out the positive comments about Elena’s Models and promotes that, while trying to blast other competition aside. The site holds lots of false advertisement about Anastasiadate, which has ultimately been tinkered with by EM Online,” the complaint states.
According to Anastasia, ruadventures.com has also made illegal utilisation of the branded logo design to appeal to customers. “Through self referential tags, while using Anastasia’s trademarks, the websites are now linked to Anastasiadate, which has made them popular search engine results,” the accusation says. Anastasiadate are searching for a cease and desist charge for the actions of EM Online. Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn’s Richard C. Yeskoo is standing for the plaintiff.
Anastasiadate.com gives American men the ability to meet “some of the globe’s most desirable ladies!” “Anastasiadate offers the world’s ultimate dating service,” the site says. The internet site describes itself as “your quickest approach to a stack of responses, legitimate and affectionate ladies, 24/7 customer satisfaction and security.”
On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon author states that he knows everything with regards to the web page. According to him, Anastasiadate hires girls who’re paid to speak with the clients. He knows this just because a Ukrainian woman that had been communicating with him actually revealed these secrets. For chatting and emailing men, these women are promised a high wage along with other benefits. The only listed qualifications are to be 18 or older, to understand English, and to know how to use a computer, according to the website.
