Just recently Tvnetworkwar was caught in a minor dispute against Nakanaks.blogspot in a copy right issue! Published yesterday, April 13, 2011, on TVNETWORKWAR, Nakanaks.blogspot.com, a Filipino-based entertainment blog, deliberately copied, in context, the article "GMA-7 SURPASSED ABS-CBN IN 2010-Q4 NET EARNINGS" without any consent from the author and/or publisher of the said article. Nakanaks did not mention or even acknowledge TVNETWROKWAR as the source of the article, hence attempting to claim the write-up to be its original material.
Under the provisions of Republic Act 8293 also known as Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines, authors and publishers owns the right to be acknowledged whenever its original material is being used by other parties. This provides the complainant the right to claim for damages incurred from unlawful actions.
It is not to jump into the conclusion that Nakanaks intended to ignore The Philippine Copyright Law, but its lack of enthusiasm to act on this matter may prove its guilt.
Tvnetworkwar does not claim for any damages caused by this misconduct, but it is with conviction that it advocates for rightful and fair journalism, that in the midst of turmoil and disorder, objectivity and courtesy among professionals rules.
At the end of the day, we are here for the same purpose, Public Service. So instead of building walls, Tvnetworkwar is more zealous on building bridges for better journalism.
