Two sites, which provide online dating services, took one another to Federal Court
Anastasia International accused EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models of brand name violations, incorrect marketing, indirect interference and illegal competition, inside the New York City Federal Court. Anastasia is a United States dating company, while EM Online is an Australian based online dating web site. Both, nevertheless, concentrate on the United States market. And so, one could discover how both are rivalling for the exact same market.
“Anastasia, who have carried EM Online to the court, matches up American men with Russian and Ukrainian females. NYC has the main market for Anastasia”, the plaintiff suggests. “Therefore, both webpages concentrate on the similar spot, consequently they are both competing for the exact same prospective buyers, with regards to the U.S Market. By means of our analysis, it has become clear that ‘anastasiadatefraud’ and ‘ruadventures.com’ are both websites created by Elena’s Models to place a stain on Anastasia’s good reputation . The websites’ owners cannot be recognized due to a proxy service being utilized, which makes things suspicious as you would expect. To make matters a lot more suspicious, such sites redirect whoever is viewing them to elenasmodels.com. The basis of the bogus marketing accusation stands because of the fact that the two internet sites accuse Anastasiadate of carefully and indefinitely ripping off customers and deceive their clients when choosing their services, and after that will continue to claim that the accused, elenasmodels.com, is a totally safe and reliable dating site. “The anastasiadatefraud.com web site is designed to reveal and uncover email messages composed by the girls who have accounts on Anastasiadate.com. The e-mail extracts all have a typical message – ladies featured on Anastasiadate.com are not truly searching for a relationship with men from the U.S., but rather are contract workers paid to correspond with Anastasia clients and break their hearts. These accusations are false, and also the email messages from the women appear to be fake. Anastasiadate goes to great length to make certain that the men.”
Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud are not true, and had the emails written specifically to hurt Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. Quite unjustly, Elena’s Models is using ruadventures.com to ward off any competition so that it can prosper at their expense. “The ruadventures.com website, whilst pretending to be an independently developed forum for the exchange of info about international online dating services, in reality is only selecting and submitting negative details about Elena’s Models’ competitors (including Anastasia) and reviews that are positive about Elena’s Models service. Almost nothing about Anastasiadate is true on this site, as it is quite evident that the facts have been twisted to shun a bad light on Anastasiadate,” the complaint states.
Ruadventures.com has illicitly used elements of Anastasia’s copyrighted logo, according to Anastasia. “Using metatags utilizing the Anastasiadate trademarks, defend[ant] has positioned both internet sites so that they show up at or near the top of any internet search for Anastasiadate,” according to the complaint. Anastasia is seeking an initial and long-lasting injunction, and treble and punitive damages. Anastasia are being defended by Richard C. Yeskoo.
Anastasiadate.com gives American men the opportunity to meet ” the planet’s most incredible girls!” “Anastasiadate offers the world’s ultimate dating service,” the site claims. The meta description is “the easiest method to find real women online, with the best customer protection available on a dating site.”
On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon writer claims that he knows everything about the website. He claims Anastasiadate pays third-party companies to employ “girls” who are paid to converse with customers. A female form the Ukraine told him this information, which explains why he’s now exposing it to everyone. Women are promised a lot of money and decent working hours, just by chatting and emailing American men, by a third party company attached to Anastasiadate. The requirements necessary for this type of “job” are: to be over 18 years and to be literate in English and in computers.
The girl could have been working for Elena’s Models, as she actually suggested the site to him!
