Jon Huntsman Jr. Looking at Intellectual Property Enforcement in Thailand

BANGKOK, THAILAND -- Tariff privileges given by the U.S. Government to Thailand makes the issue of intellectual property violations critical in that nation, and the acting US Trade Representative, LDS Church member Jon Huntsman, Jr. is looking at the issue. Knowing that the privileges hing, in part, on its enforcement of copyright, trademark and patent laws and treaties, Thailand has stepped up enforcement, doubling arrests for violations since 1999 to 2,800 last year, and arresting another 1,500 this year. Huntsman was briefed on Thailand's efforts by Kantathi Suphamongkhon, the Thai Trade Representative, in August and Suphamongkhon said he had received a warm response. But the U.S. Government hasn't yet made a formal announcement about extending the privileges for Thailand.
