Model-Scouts.nyc, West-38 and Manhattan-Models stole photos, testimonials, copyrighted content and trademarks from our website
We first became aware of model-scouts.nyc, and its other feeder sites, when we discovered they had stolen photos, testimonials, copyrighted content, and trademarks from our website. They fraudulently misrepresented our material as theirs in order to mislead models into believing they were either affiliated with ModelScouts.com, or that the testimonials and photos were the result of their work when they were not.
At no time did model-scouts.nyc, manhattan-models, or west-38 have permission to use our copyrighted and trademarked material. Our legal department sent several cease and desist letters to model-scouts.nyc, manhattan-models.com, west-38.com, and their web hosting companies, demanding the removal of our copyright and trademarked material, and to cease their fraudulent misrepresentation.
In an emailed letter from the operators of these websites to us and our legal department, they admitted, in writing, their fraudulent misrepresentation to the public, and their copyright and trademark infringement. They eventually removed most of our material. However, remnants of our content still remains on their sites.
