Regulatory & Anti-Piracy

In early July, the Regulatory and Anti-Piracy Committee featured an online and in-person engagement with Members in Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and London with “OTT Policy in Thailand” high on the agenda as a follow-up to an Executive Office exchange with Thai government officials.

Other items on the agenda included anti-piracy initiatives focused on Illicit Streaming Devices in several Asia Pacific jurisdictions, as well as an upcoming review of the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Ordinances in Hong Kong.
