Copyright owners and consumer protection groups were invited to witness the delivery on Thursday (January 30) of a mountain of seized fake goods to the private firm that will destroy them.

 

The Aranyaprathet Customs House in Sa Kaeo province handed over clothing, bags, shoes and blankets deemed in violation of intellectual property laws to Thai Asia 14001 Co Ltd. 

 

There were 58,839 items worth a combined Bt14 million among the 142 shipments seized at the eastern border.

So burn them creating an environmental issue rather than donate to a needy cause like hill tribe villagers or similar. More crazy logic...

Fake goods are destroyed world wide.

Incineration is the preferred method.

An appropriate company with appropriate safeguards on their incinerator is the appropriate way to go.

I know not if this company has these safeguards, but I expect they do, and I also suggest no one here knows otherwise.

At an average price of under 250 baht, not faking anything worthwhile. And fake bankets?

I thought this was the only stuff they actually recycled (resold) here in Thailand?

Look on line and see the fake goods being sold via the WISH site.   I understand it is an American company having goods delivered direct from China.

Oh look at the "low rent" tourists with LV luggage at the airport, you know there is no way they would have gained admittance to the LV shop.

Customs should spend a day or two at check-in confiscating the goods
