ABS CBN Bashes Pinoy Blogger Websites for Allegedly Infringing Copyrighted Content from Shows and Teleserye

ABS-CBN is known for so many popular tv shows and teleserye (soap drama). While some have aired successful pilot episodes and interesting daily and nightly coverage, many Pinoys it seems love the art of watching a missed segment. Due to widespread available online copied content episodes of these shows and teleserye, Pinoys can now watch a missed version. Since many Pinoy bloggers have made and recorded episodes or have gotten it elsewhere, it has become so easy to share and make available a copy of the replay videos online.

Due to widespread copyright infringement cases, it seems that ABS-CBN can’t handle more of it. They have their own arm for watching online teleserye and other available shows of the Kapamilya Network now which is http://www.iwantv.com.ph. You can watch different free tv shows and teleserye replays as well if you have an account with Sky Cable. We have one at home so I can access them all and watch later if ever I feel like I want to when I miss them. On the other hand, to further take account in keeping the integrity of service of http://www.iwantv.com.ph, I was able to come up with a certain keyword being a SEO pro in the Philippines where people have become accustomed to searching online. This keyword is “got to believe replay”. A couple of weeks ago, when I type this 2 words in the Google search box, you can still find many blogs and websites featuring replay videos of the different ABS-CBN shows.

Just a couple of days ago, I was surprised that all those sites that posted copyrighted material from the network had their indexed pages removed by Google by virtue of copyright infringement claim by ABS-CBN. You can read about the complaint and the de-indexed pages and sites here – http://www.chillingeffects.org/notice.cgi?sID=1313913.

I came up with the information that ABS-CBN now found a way to bash those Pinoy bloggers with copyrighted content by the network by reporting it to Google via a DMCA complaint where it is clear that the netword was the complaining party by virtue of a notice from sender stating the facts below.

Sender Information:
ABS-CBN Corporation
Sent by: [Private]
MUSO.com Anti-piracy

It was from a series of copyright claim complaint with a series of letters provided at the end of the Google search results on first page with the keyword “got to believe replay” dated November 19, 20, 22 and December 4 of the year 2013. Does this mean that ABS-CBN now had a team that handles all cases of copyright claim and infringement cases? If so, could this be the end of teleserye replay bloggers’ earnings from providing copyrighted material of different TV shows and teleseryes?

If you are a blogger and you want out, don’t copy content and post it on your sites for money and content. Do give due credit when necessary and as necessary to the owner of the content in the right manner acceptable by DMCA laws and other online governing cyber law. Otherwise, you could be sued and jailed for this. Copyright infringement is punishable by law in other countries so better make sure you won’t commit one after another.
