Two web sites, presenting internet dating services, have taken one another to the Federal Court
This Federal Court case involves online dating sites Anastasiadate and EM Online. The dispute has come up over unfair competition, unlawful use of Anastasia’s brand, false advertisement etc . The hearings are now being heard in the New York Federal Court. Anastasia makes use of the domains Anastasiadate and Anastasiadate.com for its web-site. EM Online is headquartered in Australia.
“Anastasia, who’ve took EM Online to court, matchmakes American men with Russian and Ukrainian women. One of the most targeted part of the United States is The Big Apple”, says the statement. “Elena’s Models can be described as a strong adversary of Anastasia. It runs the elenasmodels.com webpage and competes for the exact same customers as Anastasia in the United States. We’ve the essential info to believe that EM Online either is in control, or supports, internet sites named : ‘anastasiadatefraud.com’ and ‘ruadventures.com’. Both of these websites disguise the identity of their owners by using a proxy service. Nevertheless, they redirect people to the elenasmodels.com website. These sites try to put Anastasia in a bad light by blaming the site of fraud to its customers, due to the site “being a rip-off”, and then endorses Elena’s Models as a substitute. “The anastasiadatefraud.com web site is intended to reveal and expose emails written by the ladies who have accounts on Anastasiadate.com. The e-mail extracts all have a typical message – women featured on Anastasiadate.com are not truly hunting for a relationship with men from the U.S., but instead are contract workers paid to correspond with Anastasia customers and break their hearts. The emails look to be quite fake, and so anastasiadatefraud.com might be charged with false advertising. Anastasiadate’s main priority is to make sure that all the females in the site’s service are legitimate women who are searching for love.”
Elena’s Models knows the claims it makes on anastasiadatefraud aren’t true, and had the emails written specifically to damage Anastasia’s business, the complaint states. Anastasia claims Elena’s uses the ruadventures.com website to showcase its own company and submit untrue, damaging information regarding competitors. “This site, despite claiming to be a forum focused on reviewing online dating sites, is actually noted to be quite picky as it promotes Elena’s Models specifically while trying to harm other businesses. The website contains false information about customers’ use of the Anastasiadate service which .. has been manufactured by Elena’s Models,” as is written on the complaint.
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,” according to the complaint. Anastasiadate are searching for 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 “a few of the planet’s most incredible girls!” “Anastasiadate offers the world’s best online dating service,” the site claims. The meta description is “your speediest way to a stack of replies, legitimate and loving ladies, 24/7 customer service and security.”
On anastasiadatefraud.com, an anon author states that he knows everything about the internet site. According to him, Anastasiadate hires girls who will be paid to speak with the clients. He claims that he knows this just because a woman he talked with in Kiev explained to him how Anastasiadate works. He claims the third-party agencies guarantee women “high cash flow and versatile schedule” to email and chat with American men. The only real listed qualifications are to be 18 or older, to know English, and also to know 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.
