The World Chinese Business Investment Foundation is seeking an injunction to restrain three parties from using two trademarks of the World Outstanding Chinese Award, in a writ issued on Friday. The defendants are Honor Doctorate of World Outstanding Chinese Limited, Success China Group Limited and Sze Wing-chung. The foundation is also seeking damages or an account of profits as a result of the defendants' acts of passing off. In a declaration posted on the foundation's website, Sze is accused of misleading the public by stealing the trademarks and running an event.
