Asia IP

The New Film and Video Act, which entered into force on June 4, 2008, has been implemented in order to update the antiquated 1930 Movie and Video Act, which was widely criticized by the filmmakers notably regarding the wide censorship powers of the Board of Film and Video Censors (Board). The Act brings changes especially on the composition and duties of the Board, on the new rating system, on the procedure for shooting foreign films in Thailand, and on the piracy of movies in the streets.
