Should have stuck to using 'Hello Kitty' logos or many other cartoon figures subject to copyright yet blatantly exploited by local companies and individuals.

The two men were granted bail in the sum of 80,000 baht each and vowed to appeal. 

 

 

So a year  to get a verdict and then instead of going to prison after being found guilty they are let out on bail !  :crazy:

Not siding with the extorters, but Loy Krathong is a Buddhist religious festival, not an excuse for kids to float cartoon characters down the river to pollute it.

And she WAS breaking copyright laws, just like T-shirts or copied software etc.

Who cares about copyright? No one here does. Making items using image rights belonging to someone else, without permission is a crime.

 

Even so, the perps got their comeuppance. Now for those who make the Kratongs, and the shirts and handbags....everything else with copyrighted images or brands.
