New lawsuit against Match (nasdaq: IACI)

 UPDATE: Yuliana Avalos has argued in a lawsuit against Match that photos of her were posted without her permission on the site as part of a scam that drove a man to commit suicide.

"Yuliana Avalos, is a part-time model who never joined Match, but says her pictures have been used in ~200 fake profiles."

It seems fake profiles in Online Dating sites will be a hot topic for lawyers this busy season in the Online Dating Industry (20th Dec 2013 to 20th Feb 2014)

Global Personals Ltd. owns White Label which had been proven by Journalists to invent fake profiles. Same for Cupid PLC who now has new CEO. After that scandal some "UK Dating Sites Found Body To Clean Up Industry"  But they should begin to delete all FAKE and INACTIVE PROFILES  from online dating sites.
The same for Ashley Madison's "Ashley’s Angels"

Match can win in Court but they could be incinerated by Journalists or killed by power of word of mouth!

Imagine a NEW Legislation for Online Dating Sites to force them disclose how many active members they have (Premium members: paid or with gift subscriptions) ?
And also force them to conduct ID verification ? A variety of new laws, or new interpretations of existing laws, could subject dating sites to claims or otherwise harm their business. (extracted from IAC SEC filing)
