Muslim dating site Muzz loses appeal against Match Group, which owns Tinder.

Due to its resemblance to Match.com, Muzz, whose full name is “MuzMatch,” was advised to modify its name to “Muzz.” Muzz contested the judgement.
The Muslim dating service “MuzMatch” recently lost an appeal against a court order that required the business to change its name to “Match.com” since it is similar to the rival dating industry behemoth.

The court decision that Muzz is contesting stated that because MuzMatch contains the word “Match” in its name, it is incorrectly regarded as a member of the Match Group, which is the organisation that owns numerous dating apps, including Tinder, Match.com, OkCupid, Hinge, and Plenty Of Fish.

In June 2022, Muzz discussed the court decision and stated that it was “deeply worrying for other start-ups in the dating sector.”

However, Match Group was happy to hear from a spokesperson that Muzz had unfairly benefited from using their name.

The spokesperson for Match Group stated, “We’ve always known that Muzmatch has unfairly benefited from our reputation and investment in our brands, and was riding on Match Group’s coat-tails for its own gain.”
