HERALD SCOTLAND - Nov 19 - Cupid has found itself embroiled in a €1M (£800K) legal dispute over the way it has romanced French customers. Cupid has been challenged by continental rival Cupidon over the Scottish company's use of the Cupidon.com domain name it bought 18 months ago for £175,000. The result of the case, which is being heard by the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris, is expected this week. Cupidon, the owner of the Cuipdon.fr, Cupidon.be and Cupidon.net websites, claims its trade mark has been infringed and that Cupid is trading unfairly. Cupidon is seeking €800K in damages over Cupid's use of the Cupidon.com name, €75K on the grounds of unfair competition and €75K for tardiness in responding to Cupidon's request that it stop using the domain as well as assorted costs and daily charges if Cupid does not comply.
