On March 1, 2021, agents of the Optical Media Board inspected 8 Hug International Corporation, a business establishment in Ermita, Manila, engaged in the sale of mini DVD players, TV boxes and smart TVs.
The said establishment failed to present an OMB license upon inspection. OMB agents closed the establishment and took units of HUG Mini DVD players with songbooks and discs, smart TVs, and TV boxes for admissible evidence.
Engaging in business activities such as the distribution and sale of storage devices without the appropriate license from OMB are violations under Republic Act No. 9239 otherwise known as the Optical Media Act of 2003. #
