Look what I wrote in june 2008, when a campaign against pirated goods was launched, and the Commerce Minister vowed to clean the country. In three months. 😉
Today, we have a new government, and therefore new clowns, so the circus continues.
The National Police Bureau has set its sight on eradicating piracy throughout the nation in compliance with the government policy while assembling an investigative team to search out copyright violations.
Deputy Minister of Commerce Alongkorn Pollabutr joined National Police Commander Pol. Gen. Patcharawat Wongsuwan in launching the first wave of officers specifically tasked with tackling violations against intellectual property laws at Dusit Palace this morning (January 22nd).
The brunt of the crackdown will run from today until January 28th and comes in response to a policy set by the government as a national agenda for eradication of such material. Pol. Gen. Patcharawat stated that the National Police Bureau will put its operation in full force, beginning in Bangkok with plans to expand to the entire nation. (PRD)
First wave of officers ? Full force ? 😉 It’s good to laugh.
I feel compelled to help those clowns. A simple copy-paste of my article last year will be enough. Sorry to quote myself.
DVD’s, CD’s, software… are available in many retail shops, everywhere in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Phuket… you name it. EVERYWHERE.
Panthip of course, MBK (floor 4), Fortune Town on Ratchapisek (floor 2 for software, and 3 for the movies)… in real shops… not only small stalls on Sukhumvit road…
Change with Abhisit ? Yes we can’t.
