Nation Multimedia Group takes legal action over alleged copyright violation

The Nation Multimedia Group is filing criminal cases against two media monitoring service companies for violation of its copyright.

NMG’s subsidiaries Krungthep Turakij Media, Nation News Network and Kom Chad Luek Media, as plaintiffs, filed criminal cases with the Central Intellectual Property and International Trade Court on April 9 against iSentia Bangkok and iSentia Monitoring Services (Thailand).

The two companies are subsidiaries of iSentia Group, a listed company located outside Thailand.

The two companies have been accused of using copyrighted work, articles and news appearing in The Nation, Krungthep Turakij and Kom Chad Luek newspapers over the past year for commercial gains by duplication, modification and publication for their clients in exchange for fees without authorisation or consent from Nation Group, according to the NMG management.

The three newspapers are the main print publications of Nation Group.

The court has fixed dates for preliminary hearing of these three cases. Krungthep Turakij’s case will be heard on July 8, Nation News Network’s complaint will be heard on July 15 and Kom Chad Luek’s on July 22.
