ePropertySites Files Copyright Lawsuit Against Listings-to-Leads, LLC
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
ePropertySites, LLC today announced that it has filed a lawsuit
against Henderson, Nev.-based Listings-To-Leads, LLC alleging numerous
copyright and trade dress violations. ePropertySites.com,
a leading real estate marketing firm that enables real estate agents to
produce high quality commercials and marketing materials online and in
print, alleges that LTL blatantly copied ePropertySites.com website
According to the lawsuit,
filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, LTL
appears to have taken the entre source code of ePropertySites.com's
property brochures and used it as its own. ePropertySites was able to
prove this by viewing LTL's source code and seeing an almost exact copy
of ePropertySites own HTML source code - including having
ePropertySites.com URLs within the HTML code. The suit further alleges
that LTL has taken ePropertySites.com's trade dress and used as its own,
profiting from ePropertySites.com's time and effort.
"We've spent a great deal of time, effort and money creating the designs
and producing the HTML code to generate these assets, and for someone
to, in essence 'steal' our work will not go without repercussions," said
Greg Mazurek, co-founder and chief technical officer at
ePropertySites.com. "This action will not be tolerated, and we will
prosecute to the fullest extent of the law."
ePropertySites.com spent a number of years and significant resources
developing a suite of products that allows for the generation of
marketing materials for individual properties. Specifically,
ePropertySites is in the business of designing, coding, producing, and
maintaining websites and marketing materials that allow real estate
agents to produce high quality commercials to market their listings over
the Internet and in print.
"We believe that our marketing materials and website deliver a unique
experience and a high value to our customers, and we will defend against
anyone that fails to respect our intellectual property rights," said
Chris Bates, co-founder and chief marketing officer. "It infuriates me
that other companies would have the nerve to just blatantly copy someone
else's work and sell it as their own."
