Realtor.com and Zillow Battle It Out

Two of the larger players in the real estate search website world, Realtor.com and Zillow, have come to blows over the past few weeks first with Zillow hiring Errol Samuelson, the former Chairman of Move, Inc. (the owner of Realtor.com) and then, most recently, hiring Curt Beardsley who, ironically, was the person promoted my Move to help fill the empty shoes of Samuelson. Yesterday, REALTOR.com fired back at Zillow filing a lawsuit against both Zillow, Inc. and Errol Samuelson for “breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and misappropriation of trade secrets among others actions.”

In a statement, Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move, inc. said “we take our trade secrets and intellectual property extremely seriously as a valuable asset in our competitive position in the marketplace.” Berkowitz added,”We take action in cases in which we believe our trade secrets have been compromised. We have raised this matter for the courts and believe that the matter will be resolved judiciously.”
