Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily is suing rival online news portal Orange News for running an article featuring information substantially similar to its own undercover probe into dodgy luxury tours that brought well-off mainland women to the city for unlicensed cosmetic treatment. Apple Daily and Ad Internet Limited - which is behind holding company Next Media's various websites - claimed that defendants Cloud Connect Technology and Yau Bong Culture Company "reproduced in whole or substantial parts" an article on July 7 based on two articles published on Apple Daily 's website, according to a High Court writ. Cloud Connect and Yau Bong run Orange News, the online news portal's website said. Orange News' article in question also featured two other photographs belonging to the plaintiffs, Apple Daily claimed. One depicted a group of women on a yacht, while the other showed people standing next to a car. The plaintiffs wrote in the writ that the copyright of their work had been infringed and demanded an injunction to bar the defendants from further infringing on or authorising others to infringe on their copyright. They were also seeking an order for the defendants to either return or destroy all items that could violate the injunction and for the payment of damages and legal costs. As of yesterday, the Orange News article, which first ran hours after Apple Daily 's series went online, could still be seen on its website. In July, Apple Daily reported that a group of unlicensed people organised luxury tours for wealthy mainland women to come to Hong Kong to undergo cosmetic treatment, including Botox injections. It stated they were housed in five-star hotels in the city.
