Crossing International Boundaries: Swedish Newspaper Features Museum of Counterfeit Goods

Svenska Dagbladet

The Tilleke & Gibbins Museum of Counterfeit Goods has been featured in Svenska Dagbladet, a widely circulated newspaper published on a daily basis in Sweden. The article examines intellectual property infringement through the eyes of a Swedish journalist, as he presents his experiences while traveling throughout many parts of Thailand. Like many tourists, he encounters a plethora of pirated goods sold at prices that are truly too good to be true.

As part of the journalist’s research, he interviewed IP enforcement specialist Titirat Wattanachewanopakorn, an attorney-at-law in the Tilleke & Gibbins intellectual property group. The topic of discussion focused on the hazards associated with counterfeiting, and Tilleke & Gibbins’ long-term fight against piracy. Commenting on the museum and its collection of goods, the article commends it as being “a real eye-opener” for visitors who wish to learn about the depth and breadth of intellectual property infringement in Thailand.
