Pattaya, the 10th of Febuary 2008 [Pattaya Daily News]:  at 2pm, Pattaya City Deputy Mayor, Mr. Ronnakij Ekasingh led a seminar at Pattaya City Hall regarding copyright and privilege law. The meeting was arranged by the joint venture company MCT-Phonorights Co. Ltd. and attended by Mr. Surachai Rouyrin, former mayor of Pattaya City, beer bar owners and other concerned citizens.

The purpose of the seminar was to explain copyright laws and legal penalties according to legislation passed in the year 2537. Beer bar owners shared their experiences with being checked for violating copyright laws and being fined by police and relevant company officers.

Police Major Wittaya Yeunyong, Pattaya Police Protector, discussed the proper process of fining violators, rather than arresting them. He also provided additional information about copyrights to those in attendance.

Pattaya City Deputy Mayor Mr. Ronnakij discussed complaints that had been received from business owners who were overcharged or otherwise exploited by company officers. He explained that there was a criminal element that falsely claimed to be owners of copyrights or officers who were authorized to check establishments and assess fines. Mr. Ronnakij said that business owners or their representatives should request an ID card from the officers or company representatives before letting them enter their premises. If an ID card is not presented, the business owner should call the police, immediately.

The joint venture company, MCT-Phonorights was legally formed to take care of music copyrights for two concerned organizations: MCT for music copyright distribution and Phonrights for recording copyright distribution. If someone wishes to pay for music copyrights, he must contact only JV: MCT-Phonorights (One-Stop).
