May 25, 2021 | 

Thailand’s prime minister was delighted to received praise from the chief of the English Premier League for its handling of copyright issues, reported Daily News.

Government spokesman Anucha Buraphachaisri said that Richard Masters had sent a letter saying that Thailand was a fine example to others when it came to piracy after a series of high profile arrests.

PM Prayut Chan-o-cha was reportedly delighted and thanked all agencies for their efforts in making Thailand look good in the eyes of the international community when it comes to piracy and copyright issues.

Drilling down into the details Anucha said that the Department of Special Investigations had worked with the EPL on shutting down two sites that were illegally televising matches in the country. 

Expat TV was taken down first then FWIP TV followed suit. 

The EPL works worldwide to try and ensure that their brand is not compromised.

In Thailand the only company that has a right to the matches is True Visions.

The EPL finished on Sunday with Manchester City being crowned champions.
