Eight arrested in Khon Kaen over Doraemon copyright violation

Police arrested a woman and seven of her employees after they found Bt300,000 worth of goods in her warehouse in Khon Kaen’s Chumpae district that violated the Doraemon copyright.

Supatra Larthoom, 37, and her workers were arrested after police searched her warehouse in Moo 1 village in Tambon Nong Khalid at noon on Friday.
Police seized 160 side pillows, nine blankets, 16 picnic mattresses, two pillow cases, two side pillow cases and one bed sheet all printed with the Doraemon character.
Acting Provincial Police Bureau 4 chief Pol Lt Gen Thitipong Anupongpipat said the search was carried out under the Chumpae Court’s warrant obtained after the Animation International (Thailand) company filed a complaint with police that its Doraemon copyright was infringed.
