PHUKET: With advances in information technology in recent years, much has been said about the “inevitable” demise of print media.

Few among us would deny that we are living in a time of breathtaking change in the way news is delivered, consumed and shared.

Copyright laws are becoming virtually unenforceable in our global world, and the new reality is that we can download just about every form of digital information produced with little more fear of adverse consequences than might arise from running a red light on the streets of Phuket.
