The King gets an award from a U.N. outfit concerned about intellectual property rights. Has the King been over to Panthip Plaza lately? Intellectural property rights are broken hundreds of times daily, so Thailand has no leg to stand on. And so why is he getting this award? For his efforts to stop intellectual property rights violation in Thailand? Ha.
His Majesty the King will tomorrow become the first recipient of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)'s Global Leaders Award. WIPO director-general Francis Gurry will present a medal to His Majesty at Prachuap Khiri Khan's Klai Kangwon Palace.
