via Phnom Penh Post, 08 October 2020: Cambodia is looking to a diplomatic solution to the Le Palais Hotel in Thailand. It looks like they are filing for some sort of copyright (or similar) infringement?
The Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts will submit a joint inter-institutional memorandum to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation for a diplomatic decision regarding the case of the Le Palais Hotel in Thailand, which replicated Khmer-style temples without permission in its design.
Culture ministry spokesman Long Ponnasirivath told The Post that on Tuesday afternoon, the foreign ministry held an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by culture minister Phoeung Sakona to review the facts and laws related to hotel’s design.
Ponnasirivath said the participants in the meeting included representatives from the tourism, commerce and foreign ministries.
“As a result, the meeting decided to make a joint memorandum . . . for a diplomatic decision based on articles 6 and 10 of the Paris Convention on Protection of industrial property dated March 20, 1883, and other principles related to the preservation of the values of Khmer ancient temples,” Ponnasirivath said.
