(IAC) (MTCH) Privacy Issues Could Kill Match Group (via OPW)

More millennials are starting to swipe left on Tinder

Tinder, eHarmony and Zoosk Win iDate2016 Superconference Awards ? 

Do you remember also? Global Personals Ltd. owner of White Label which had been proven by Journalists to invent fake profiles from inside. Same for Cupid PLC with a new CEO named last year. 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 AshleyMadison's "Ashley’s Angels" [Fortress Investments, a New York hedge fund, will loan Avid Life Media USD50M over two years and Ashley Madison Linked To A Murder Case ]
the big lawsuit against Match (nasdaq: IACI) [Evan Spencer, says that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match fail to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that her pictures were being used hundreds of times. 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."]

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)
