Two travel companies in India are fighting each other over the ownership of names and domain names. These two companies are MakeMyTrip and EaseMyTrip.
The similarity between their names is pretty clear. MakeMyTrip was founded in 2000 while EaseMyTrip was founded in 2008. Now, MakeMyTrip is suing EaseMyTrip for using the name and the logo. They have sued EaseMyTrip over its usage of domain names EaseMyTrip.com, EaseMyTrip.in, b2b.EaseMyTrip.com and corporate.EaseMyTrip.com.
EaseMyTrip on the other hand doesn’t have the trademarks rights for the usage of its name and logo. It has applied for both and is waiting for approval.
The price of shares of EaseMyTrip rose after a Board meeting was announced over the purchase of names. Read more about the news here.
