February 15, 2021 – agents of the Optical Media Board inspected several retailers of CCTV cameras along Sta. Cruz, Manila.
One of the retailers, Smart Eye Technologies Depot Inc., was found selling CCTVs packaged with storage devices. Taken into custody were 13 pieces of internal HDDs as the said establishment failed to present an OMB license.
Engaging in business activities such as the distribution and sale of storage devices without the appropriate license and permits from OMB are violations under Republic Act No. 9239 otherwise known as the Optical Media Act of 2003. #
