Consim Takes On Tamilmatrimony.co.in Over Trademarked Name

The Bharatmatrimony group (Consim Info) has filed a claim with the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) against TamilMatrimony.co.in, reports StartupDunia. TamilMatrimony.co.in has been registered by Anand Sanwal, and is a website about Indian matrimony, and indeed – matrimonial sites, with just a few blog posts.

TamilMatrimony.com is among Consim Info’s portfolio of regional matrimonial sites, and going by the logo, they have trademarked “TamilMatrimony” or “TamilMatrimony.com”. Consim Info also appears to have trademarked the names of all their regional sites – Assamese Matrimony, Bengali Matrimony, Gujarati Matrimony, Hindi Matrimony, Kannada Matrimony, Malayalee Matrimony, Marathi Matrimony, Marwadi Matrimony, Oriya Matrimony, Parsi Matrimony, Punjabi Matrimony, Sindhi Matrimony, Telugu Matrimony, Urdu Matrimony.

If NIXI does rule in Consim’s favour, perhaps Sanwal will receive some compensation as well. Remember that when YouTube got a ruling in its favour, regarding YouTube.co.in, YouTube.co.nz and YouTube.in, they paid around $6100 to the owner of the domains.

Update: Anand, in the comments suggests that we’re supporting the tamilmatrimony.co.in cause. That assumption is incorrect – we’re just reporting on a legal case. It’s for the arbiter to decide who is in the right. Personally, I think tamilmatrimony is just playing to the gallery with the “bullying” angle to it. If it’s trademarked, Consim has every right to file a claim with NIXI
