Updated for 2013, the Thailand chapter of Media, Advertising, and Entertainment Law Throughout the World provides a broad overview of media, advertising, and entertainment law in the Kingdom, including an introductory discussion of art law. In the section on media law, the text sets forth the statutory and regulatory framework for publishing, broadcasting, and online services. It also reviews Thailand’s particularly strict defamation laws, invasion of privacy, and right of publicity.
Moving on to advertising law, the chapter examines the general limitations on claims and false advertising under the Consumer Protection Act, as well as targeted regulations for specific industries like food, drugs, cosmetics, and alcoholic beverages. Entertainment law and art law are also examined in depth in the chapter.
