Television channel TVB sends legal warning to adult website over alleged trademark infringement

Hong Kong free-to-air television channel TVB has confirmed that it sent a legal warning letter to an adult website, accusing it of trademark infringement.

In the undated letter, which was circulated widely online, TVB claimed that adult website myavsuper.com bore similarities to mytvsuper.com – the channel’s online streaming service for dramas and movies.

HKFP History: Hong Kong’s most tumultuous year – the 1967 riots

Hong Kong’s leftist riots were sparked in May 1967 by a labour dispute at an artificial flower factory. The large-scale, pro-communist protests were staged in sympathy with the mainland Cultural Revolution and against British rule.

Throughout the year, there were violent demonstrations, massive strikes, murders and even terrorist attacks on Hong Kong soil.

Many demonstrators wielded Mao’s Little Red Book as large loudspeakers were set up atop the Bank of China building broadcasting leftist propaganda.
