Okay! Groupon is in India, But Not Really [Hint: The Domain Name]

Alright, Groupon has theoretically entered India, and while SoSasta deal seems more of talent acquisition (and not at all user/reach acquisition), only time will tell whether Groupon can really mark a dent among Indian consumers.

Coming back to the article title, the .IN domain name, i.e. Groupon.in is not owned by Groupon, but by another group buying site, GroupOff!

groupoff

The Groupon.in redirects to Groupoff.com and while they might enjoy some initial traffic, do you expect a legal story in the making?

What’s your take?
