Happy New Year Everyone! Wishing all a great year ahead.
We are sorry to start this wonderful year with a very disturbing news. It has come to our attention that there are 2 interior design companies (one in Hong Kong, one in Macau, operated by the same person) that have been STEALING our work for a considerable period of time. They have been shamelessly putting OUR work on their company websites, YouTube channel, and other relevant corporate and promotion materials, claiming our very unique and individualized DESIGNS to be theirs, and therefore potentially cheating and stealing clients.
This is a very serious crime. It’s FRAUD. It’s COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT to our designs and the project photos that were taken and owned by us. It’s INVASION OF PRIVACY to our clients’ homes, since they have granted us, and only us, the exclusive usage of those photos.
We strongly condemn such pathetic and disgusting behavior. It’s very shocking and upsetting to see it happening in Hong Kong. It’s a disgrace to the interior design field. And a slap in the face to all of us who are working our hearts out in the creative industry, day in and day out.
This cowardly theft should never be tolerated under any circumstances.
Given the seriousness of the situation, we have already handed this case to the police and our legal advisors, and informed our clients accordingly. We hereby reserve the rights to further legal actions if necessary and are determined to do whatever it takes to ensure justice is served.
Hinley Lam Kai Hin of Deux Creative (Hong Kong) & Koodos Design (Macau), if this is your own twisted way of showing your “admiration” for us, we absolutely don’t appreciate it whatsoever. It’s ok to look up to us, but it’s DESPICABLE to steal from us. REMOVE those project images you stole from us IMMEDIATELY. And we urge you to come forward and issue a PUBLIC APOLOGY in a professional manner, for the theft you have committed over the years. Now it’s time to come clean. And maybe when it’s all said and done, you can officially apply for a trainee position at hoo and learn from all of us here, on how to actually “Be Original Be Creative”.
Creativity is not to be insulted.
