Worrawong Atcharawongchai, Ph.D.August 30, 2018
Dr. Atcharawongchai holds a degree in Intellectual Property Law from the University of Hong Kong. He currently works as a judge at the Central Intellectual Property and International Trade Court (IP&IT) in Bangkok. As a professional judge for almost 10 years, he is committed to upholding the rule of law in the administration of justice. He is particularly interested in copyright enforcement. The Central IP&IT Court has taken an active role in elevating the efficiency of copyright enforcement to address rampant copyright piracy in Thailand through strengthening social norms and reinforcing people’s respect towards copyright enforcement. Although the success of this policy initiative has not been evident in the short term, he strongly believes that it can incrementally plant the seeds of respect towards copyright enforcement among Thai people.
