The internet around the world is buzzing from reports in Thailand of two American, major pornographic movie makers getting arrested in Thailand and then freed under legal loopholes and another case of a Bangkok blogger defaming many prominent foreigners, including a British Embassy official. Under the Thailand Computer-Related Crime Act many criminal court cases in Thailand have charged internet users for attacking a person or company on the internet and damaging their reputation using photos, movies or text on blogs and websites. Now the law is being applied to makers of pornographic movies using Thai models and against bloggers. An American-managed law firm in Pattaya is now successfully defending foreigners arrested for producing computer-related sex videos while also prosecuting bloggers for defamation under the Computer Related Crime Act.
