Since September 2006

Chapter Content access  |  Sub-chapter Censorship and filtering of web content
Computer-Related Offences Act B.E. 2550 (2007)

Emergengy Decree on Public Administration in Emergency Situations B.E. 2548 (2005)
It is reported that, since the military coup in September 2006, online censorship activities in Thailand have expanded rapidly. While politically motivated, the censorship has a commercial impact, as video-sharing websites such as Youtube are often blocked completely, as well as e-retailers for selling books that critique the regime.

Moreover, the Computer-Related Offences Act B.E. 2550 and the Emergency Decree on Public Administration in Emergency Situations B.E. 2548 allow Thai officials to block or order to block websites that may alter the Kingdom's security, public order and morals, and other crimes under the Criminal Act, including lèse-majesté crimes. By 2010, OpenNet has reported that 43,908 websites have been blocked. Following the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October 2016, it was reported that censorship reached an unprecedented level, with more than 1,307 sites getting shut down that month alone.
