SinglesAroundMe® aggressively pursues trademark infringements and partially settles trademark dispute with Match.com
Thursday November 19th 2015 - New York, New York; London, England; Ottawa, Canada:
SinglesAroundMe® (SAM), One of the world’s most popular dating apps and most recognizable brands, announced today that it will aggressively pursue all trademark infringements of its valuable brand SINGLES AROUND ME®.
SinglesAroundMe® is a protected trademark in the United States, Canada and across the European union (CTM). ““Any unauthorized use of the name SinglesAroundMe® or attempts to express a similar meaning through variations of the name in association with social networks and social network services will be addressed in respect of infringing our trademark and legal rights,” said company counsel Adrian O’Donnell.
The name SinglesAroundMe® is one of the great brands and is instantly recognizable as it is suggestive of the company’s core strategic offering, that being introducing singles to one another within a close proximity. “When we applied for the trademarks back in 2009 we had recognized that the marketplace was on the verge of change and that location based dating was the way of the future,” said Christopher Klotz, CEO and founder of SinglesAroundMe®.
SinglesAroundMe® has successfully forced competitors to change trade names and or the marketing description of their apps within the various app stores. Most recently SinglesAroundMe® successfully forced The Match Group, owners of Match.com, to change the marketing description on one of its applications that infringed upon the SinglesAroundMe® trademark, although the dispute is still ongoing.

Five years ago we became fascinated by the idea of leveraging modern cell phone GPS technology to discover new ways for single people to meet. We were disenfranchised with Internet dating and frustrated by the lack of immediacy, real world opportunities and simply thought there was a better way for people to discover one another. SinglesAroundMe was born to solve this problem and we became the very first location based mobile dating app in the world. It may sound crazy but we wanted you to be able to meet single people around you today and if you traveled somewhere tomorrow, to meet a whole new group of people instantly. Today the name SinglesAroundMe has become a marque brand and is used by millions of people around the world everyday.
