US model sues dating site for $1.5 b over unauthorised use of her pics

Washington, Sun, 24 Nov 2013 ANI

Washington, Nov. 24 (ANI): The lawyer for a Florida model suing dating site Match.com as part of a 1.5-billion-dollar-class-action-lawsuit said that Match.com can easily weed out fake profiles by using software that can help pinpoint most fake profiles.

Yuliana Avalos, a mother and part-time model, said that hundrerd of fake profiles on Match.com have used her pictures without her consent.

The class action lawsuit filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Thursday alleges that copyright laws were broken by the dating site, which also committed common law fraud by allowing fake profiles with unconsenting people's images to be approved, ABC News reported.

The unspecified number of plaintiffs have claimed compensatory damages in the amount of 500-million-dollars and 1-billion-dollars for punitive damages.

The lawsuit also alleged that Match.com and its parent company IAC are partially to be blamed for the online scams, as they approve the different profiles and rarely flag a problematic profile like those that feature the same image even though they are allegedly different users in different locations.
