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

And so, you can find out how both are contending for the same market.
“The company leading this lawsuit, Anastasia, provide an online dating service by which guys from the U .S. are matched up with women from Russia or Ukraine. The Big Apple is a significant hub of Anastasia’s clientele,” the complaint suggests. “EM Online directly intrudes upon Anastasia’s market. We’ve the necessary data to assume that EM Online either is managing, or supports, website pages called: ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com’The websites’ owners cannot be recognized because of a proxy service being utilized, which makes things suspicious understandably. Despite this, they “coincidentally” redirect viewers to elenasmodels.com. These websites accuse Anastasiadate of carefully perpetuating frauds and fake deceptions upon its customers, and then recommend that the customers use Elena’s Models, which allegedly does not follow these procedures. “The anastasiadatefraud.com website is meant to reveal and expose email messages written by the girls who have accounts on Anastasiadate.com. The email messages are recurring, and claim that females shown on Anastasiadate.com aren’t really women searching for love, according to anastasiadatefraud.com they’re just women who are paid to talk with men These allegations are false, and also the e-mails from the women seem to be fake.

Anastasia claims that ruadventures.com infringes on its copyrighted logo to swipe potential 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. Anastasia seeks a basic and long-term injunction, and treble and punitive damages. Yeskoo Hogan & Tamlyn’s Richard C. Yeskoo is standing for the plaintiff.
Anastasiadate’s services include meeting “some of the globe’s most desirable girls!” “It’s not possible to find a superior internet dating service any place else,” the site claims. It identifies itself as “your most effective way to a collection of responses, legitimate and affectionate girls, 24/7 customer service and security.”
On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon writer says that he knows everything in regards to the internet site. Anastasiadate pays women to sign in and pose as single women trying to find love, and are paid to do this by the same company, according to him. He knows this because a Ukrainian woman that had been communicating with him actually revealed these secrets. He states the third-party agencies assure women “high revenue and flexible schedule” to email and chat with American men. The only real listed qualifications are to be 18 or older, to know English, and to understand how to make use of 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 serious site.
