OLX and PakWheels have entered a legal copyright infringement battle where OLX is claiming that PakWheels is misusing its copyrights and intellectual property without OLX's consent after PakWheel posted only a few ads on its website with the OLX logo on them, without the permission from OLX.
OLX has filed a complaint against PakWheels with Competition Commission of Pakistan.
Bilal Bajwa, GM, OLX Pakistan said that PakWheels repeatedly used their ads for months. After that OLX has finally issued a complaint against the auto blog site. Bilal said that the “Number could be in thousands.”
As per OLX, the replication of OLX ads on PakWheels is done deliberately and systematically.
On the other hand, PakWheels denies this claim by OLX. They say that the images they posted were by their bloggers and users and are not copied from OLX.
As per PakWheels users do copy their own ad from OLX and post it on PakWheels to attract more audience.
