The Mystery of Thai Copyright Law

I'm not a lawyer, not even an expert in the area of mystery and detective novel literature, though I am fond of A. Christie's remarkable writing and her unique characters such as Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot. I too wonder what she might make out of this case of the missing copyright enforcement and wonder what Thai readers themselves, not to mention a few concerned authors from their motherland, might think of this "mystery". It seems more unravelled though, from Ms. Yasovant's account, than concealed. At least it would appear, beyond the confines of the judicial system, to be so. Or is this yet another case to be solved?

China - Montage of the Future

Really enjoyed this interesting and informative article. Living away from the current of present day Asia - particularly China, in this case - is a considerable handicap in the appreciation of the development of art in this technology-driven era. This article does offer some assistance to that lacking on my part. Thank you Janine!

Thai Treasures

Ms Yasovant's excellent profile of this ancient wonder tells us that the long and rich history of Thailand will carry its culture through the self-destructive turmoil that has plagued it in recent years. Art like this survives as petty politicians and their greed turn to dust. There's a lesson in this treasure for people everywhere.

The Arts of Thailand

As a long-time subscriber to this magazine and a former resident of Thailand, it's been a joy to see the coverage you give to this marvelous and unique culture. The arts have been a river flowing through Thai history and defining the unique Thai lifestyle and view of life. I only wish you could expand your coverage to include much more of what Thai arts create and offer. That said, I can only commend with great praise the work of Ms Yasovant to bring Thai arts to your readers. Kop kun kap and thank you.

Salads and Kings

Besides the "yummy" factor, this is a great example of what happens when a government invests in its people. Despite all the trouble in Thailand lately the country is still lucky to have such a smart and caring King.

I must say the article very nicely written and crafted. The small details from the artist's work and how they beautifully relate. Also the little background about the places is very professionally handled.
