In February 2013, the Thai Online News Providers Association together with Thai Rath, Daily News, ASTV Manager, The Nation, Komchadluek, Krungthep Turakij, Post Today and Siam Sport filed a lawsuit against Apple on trademark and copyright infringement charges. The charges were made after Apple let applications THAINEWs+, Tiny-Thai News Reader, Thai News Reader, EveryNews and Thai Newspaper use content from the original news providers without asking for permission or paying compensation.

According to the report, there are two similar pending cases filed by the association and local news providers against Google Inc (Thailand) for having the same apps available in the Android app store, as well as Bangkok Search and Technologies Co Ltd, the owner of traffic provider www.yengo.com.
