Competition in Online Dating

Two internet sites, featuring online dating services services, have taken each other to the Federal Court. The two online dating sites are battling against each other in New York’s Federal Court, just where Anastasia International has charged EM Online Ltd. dba Elena’s Models with false advertising, infringement of Anastasia’s brand name and attempting to fabricate bogus recommendations against the webpage. For their internet site, Anastasia uses the website names Anastasiadate in addition to Anastasiadate.com. Inspite of the false impression that EM Online are based in the United States, they are really based in Australia.Online Dating

“The organization leading this lawsuit, Anastasia, give a service by which men from the U .S. are matched up with females from The Russian Federation or Ukraine. New York has the greatest market for Anastasia”, the plaintiff claims. “EM Online directly infringes upon Anastasia’s market. “Based upon info and belief, Elena’s Models runs or sponsors web pages titled ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com.'”. Due to a proxy service, websites like these are disguising the identity of their owners. To make matters even more suspicious, these web sites reroute whoever is viewing them to elenasmodels.com. The foundation of the fake advertising allegation stands because of the fact that the two websites accuse Anastasiadate of very carefully and consistently ripping off customers and deceive their potential customers when choosing their services, then will continue to state that the accused, elenasmodels.com, is a totally safe and reliable internet dating site. “The anastasiadatefraud.com web site is designed to reveal and expose e-mails composed by the girls who have accounts on Anastasiadate.com. The e-mail extracts all have a typical message – women featured on Anastasiadate.com are not truly trying to find a relationship with men from the U.S., but instead are contract employees paid to correspond with Anastasia clients and break their hearts. These claims are false, and also the e-mails from the women appear to be fake. Anastasiadate’s main concern is to ensure that all the females in the site’s service are genuine females who are looking for love.”

Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud are not true, and had the emails written specifically to damage 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. “While trying 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 attempting to blast other competition aside. The site retains lots of false advertisement about Anastasiadate, that has truly 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,” according to the complaint. Anastasiadate are seeking a cease and desist charge for the actions of EM Online. Anastasia are being defended by Richard C. Yeskoo.

Anastasiadate’s services include getting together with “several of the globe’s most breathtaking ladies!” “You can not locate a better internet dating service anywhere else,” the site says. The meta description is “your most convenient approach to a collection of replies, legitimate and caring women, 24/7 customer satisfaction and security.”

An anonymous writer, posting on anastasiadatefraud.com, claims to know every secret behind Anastasiadate. Online dating site Anastasiadate pays women to log on and pose as single women seeking love, and are paid for this by the same company, according to him. A woman form the Ukraine told him these details, which explains why he’s now exposing it to everyone. Women are assured a lot of cash and decent work hours, just by chatting and emailing American men, by a third party company attached to Anastasiadate. The requirements essential for this kind of “job” are: to be over 18 years old and to be literate in English and in computers.
