WebMD (WBMD) is suing Everyday Health (EVDY) for "trademark infringement, false advertising and unfair competition" in an NY district court.

WebMD alleges Everyday's use of the WebMD trademark on its website are search ad campaigns is meant to "deceive and mislead consumers into believing they are visiting WebMD's trusted health and wellness resources," and that such practices also "mislead advertisers whose ads are placed by Everyday Health on areas of its website that infringe WebMD's brands."

The company wants "a permanent injunction barring Everyday Health from engaging in such illegal acts," along with damages and attorney's fees.

EVDY -1.8% AH.
