2018-10-17
The current Thai government continues its relentless pursuit of improving the intellectual property landscape for rights holders in Thailand. On the heels of accession to the Madrid Protocol, amendment of the Trademark Act, and draft amendment of the Patent Act, copyright changes are coming. The Cabinet approved accession to the WIPO Copyright Treaty in its weekly session yesterday. The next stage is review and deliberation before the National Legislative Assembly.

In addition, a draft amendment to the Copyright Act itself, to address concerns from major trade partners and strengthen protection for copyright owners in the Kingdom, was also approved and will head to the Council of State who will seek the opinions of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society, Ministry of Culture and the Office of the Attorney General before sending the draft to the National Legislative Assembly. 

We will keep the community informed as further progress is announced.
