An online casino owned by a Pakistan firm is being sued by Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment Inc, claiming an infringement on trademarks with a website promoting an Indiana casino. 

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas against Pakistan company Eskay SEO and an individual associated with the website, Sultan Shafique according to the Las Vegas Sun.

Attempts to reach the defendants went unanswered. 

The website, www.belterracasino.info, says "One can feel never feel boring because there are multiple things to do here at Belterra Casino Indiana."

According to the Sun, Pinnacle says the Belterra website infringes on its trademarks for the Belterra Casino Resort & Spa, which Pinnacle calls a well-known resort hotel casino in Florence, Ind.  Additionally, the website suggests it is somehow affiliated with Pinnacle. 

The suit looks to have the domain name transferred to Pinnacle and also alleges the defendants to be engaging in cybersquatting. 

"Defendants have registered, trafficked in, and/or used a domain name that is confusingly similar to plaintiff's Belterra marks," the suit alleges. "Defendants have and/or had a bad faith intent to profit from plaintiff's Belterra marks."
