U.S. asked to keep c’right eye on Thai

A copyright trade group representing U.S. film and recording industries is warning the Clinton administration not to relax its tough trade treatment of Thailand.

The Intl. Intellectual Property Alliance praised U.S. trade representative Mickey Kantor for making progress in persuading key countries to stiffen enforcement of copyright laws. However, Kantor’s announcement Monday that he is considering downgrading Thailand as a “priority foreign country” gives IIPA pause.

IIPA exec director Eric Smith said, “We have emphasized continually that until infringers receive a meaningful penalty for piracy, which has not yet happened in Thailand, the job is far from done.”
