Famous Thai energydrink and chillipaste brands are being pirated in Asia, hitting local manufacturers, the Intellectual Property Department says.

The Red Bull brand has been copied in China, creating a loss of 1 million yuan (Bt4.5 million) from total sales of 1 billion yuan. Meanwhile, Mae Pranom chilli paste has been pirated in Malaysia.

Directorgeneral Pajchima Tanasanti said manufacturers had complained to the department about violated intellectual property rights (IPR) and lost income because of the infringements.
