Van VDO goes underground - March 7, 2005
Anyone familiar with Bangkok's incredible selection of pirated classic
films will have seen the Van VDO logo at the beginning of many copy
DVDs. After years of operating openly from a stall in Jatujak Market,
Van sent this message to his mailing list:
Dear Valued clients,
Due to the matter of the current rigor enactment of Copy Right Act
which seriously had impeded us to continue our business, we regret
to announce that we have to stop our business at Jatujak Flee Market
since now. Please be accordingly informed that we has no policy to
open any new store, branch or had distributors or agents to sell or
dispense our products at any new places.
However, we still provide the service for clients to order by email.

We realize that this method possibly caused inconvenience to some
clients. But this is the only channel for maintaining and nourishing
our relationship as well as exchanging film experiences and perspectives
Finally, we would like to thank for all your mighty supports to our
business up to now and we hope that you would enjoy watching your
favorite films. Also, please support the less opportunity but enriched
films in quality for letting them more chances to public present in
theatre as it will encourage and favorably support the film producers
and distributors to continuously in long term basis provide you such
gorgeous films as the same as we had performed to our clients from
the past until now.
