It might be time to get the laptop, hire a boat and sail way out to sea before dropping the laptop overboard because according to Bangkok-based rights group iLaw who have issued a warning that anyone with pornographic material on their computers or tablets could face jail.

A Facebook posted released from the group this week outlined that that under sections 16 and 14 of the Compute Act which was revised last December to protect the dignity and reputation of “damaged parties” meaning that pornography or other material considered illegal could be ordered to be destroyed by a court.

Failure to destroy material ordered by a court carries a maximum jail term of 2 and a half years and or a fine of 50,000 baht.

Before the revision of the law a court could only rule posting such data online was a criminal offense, now however keeping it on your computer is also a crime.
