Copyright police strike again,
this time the mobile phone vendors at Tukcom in South Pattaya.
Nearly 400 counterfeit mobile phones were confiscated and 27 vendors
arrested as regional intellectual-property police swept through South Pattaya’s
Tukcom electronics mall.
Officers seized 391 knockoffs of Apple, Samsung and Nokia phones in the Jan. 17
raid, which also resulted in the seizure of 1,000 copied phone cases,
accessories and other gadgets.
Police noted Pattaya remains a hotbed for copies and knockoffs of everything
from clothes and luggage to telephones, movies and computer software.
Raids at Tukcom are common, with a number of phone vendors arrested in May last
year there. Virtually all shops raided are back in business within days.
