A Guide to Anti-Counterfeiting in Thailand

Asialaw IP Review

Intellectual property infringement has been a problem in Thailand for a number of years. Despite collaboration between the government and the private sector, counterfeiters have demonstrated an ability to adapt and evolve, allowing them to withstand efforts at suppression. Over 2000 cases, mainly trademark infringement, are brought to justice each year, but a large volume of counterfeit goods finds its way to market and is exported. Infringement activities are often related to other crimes, resulting in a complex web of legal, economic, and social problems.
