Online Dating Dispute in the New York Federal Court

Two websites, featuring online dating services, have taken one another to the Federal Court

Both sites, Anastasia and EM Online are fighting it out in New York City’s Federal Court, just where Anastasia International has charged EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models with false advertising, infraction of Anastasia’s brand name and an attempt at fabrication of fictitious recommendations against the site. For their website, Anastasia utilizes the website names Anastasiadate together with Anastasiadate.com. Despite the misconception that EM Online are U.S based, they’re in fact headquartered in Australia.

“The Plaintiff provides an international online dating service which, for a fee, matches up adult men in the United States with girls located in Russia and Ukraine. By far the most highly targeted area of the states is New York”, claims the statement. “Elena’s Models can be described as a strong adversary of Anastasia. It manages the elenasmodels.com internet site and competes for the exact same prospective buyers as Anastasia in the United States. We have now the specified info to think that EM Online either is controlling, or supports, website pages labeled: ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com’. These two websites disguise the identity of their owners by using a proxy service. Despite this, they “coincidentally” redirect viewers to elenasmodels.com. These websites accuse Anastasiadate of methodically perpetuating frauds and deceitful deceptions upon their clientele, and then advise that the customers use Elena’s Models, which allegedly doesn’t follow these methods. “The anastasiadatefraud.com website purports to show extracts from e-mails written by women with user profiles on Anastasiadate.com. The email messages are all duplicated, and claim that females shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women looking for love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they are really females who are paid out to chat with men The emails look to be quite fake, and so anastasiadatefraud.com can be accused of false advertisement. Anastasiadate’s top priority is to make certain that all the women in the site’s service are legitimate ladies who are trying to find love.”Online Dating

Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud are not true, and had the emails written particularly to harm Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. According to Anastasia, Elena’s Models is using its other site, ruadventures.com, to hurt other companies and advertise its very own, in an exceedingly unjust manner. “While attempting to hide under 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 attempting to throw other competition out of the way. The site has lots of false advertisement about Anastasiadate, which has actually been mucked around with by EM Online,” as is written on the complaint.

According to Anastasia, ruadventures.com has also made illegitimate utilisation of the copyrighted logo to allure customers. “Through self referential tags, while using Anastasia’s trademarks, the websites are now associated to Anastasiadate, which has made them popular search engine results,” according to the complaint. Anastasiadate, needlessly to say, are pressing for charges. It is represented by Richard C. Yeskoo with Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn.

Anastasiadate.com gives American men the opportunity to meet ” the planet’s most beautiful females!” “You can not locate a better dating service any place else,” the site says. It describes itself as “your fastest way to a stack of responses, real and loving girls, 24/7 customer care and security.”

On the anastasiadatefraud.com site, also checked Thursday, an anonymous author says he will inform readers “only the facts” about Anastasia date. Anastasiadate pays women to sign in and pose as single women trying to find love, and are paid for this by the same company, according to him. A female form Kiev told him this information, which explains why he’s now revealing it to the world. He remarks the third-party agencies assure women “high revenue and versatile schedule” to email and chat with American men. The only listed qualifications are to be 18 or older, to know English, and to understand how to use a computer, according to the website.

According to the same writer, the woman recommended Elena’s Models since, according to her, was a much more professional site.
