Apartment Hunters Inc. denies it stole photos and listing information

  • In December, the parent company of Apartments.com filed a lawsuit against Apartment Hunters Inc., alleging that it used an automated process to steal a high volume of copyrighted photographs and listing data.
  • Apartment Hunters Inc., which owns ApartmentHunterz.com, has responded by denying all claims and arguing that its local rental listing websites are not direct competition.
  • The filing, which serves as a response rather than a motion to dismiss, gives little insight about how the company intends to approach the lawsuit.

Apartment Hunters Inc. has responded to a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by Apartments.com, denying that its conduct was “unlawful, unfair or fraudulent.”
