Filbar's anime and porn piracy


someone txted me today and said that Fil Barbasa owner of Filbars will be filed a case of piracy and distribution of pornography by the OMB and PNP, it was printed in the Entertainment section of Philippine Daily Inquirer, at first I need to confirm it coz its an anonymous txter, but I forward this txt message to my friends and partners in the collectible industry and said that it was true.

I haven't read the article and I always searching the article in www.inq7.net, but it seems that it was deleted or not yet updated, but earlier, Lace had read the news and she confirmed it was true and she taught that if it was my relative,. hahaha..I told her "we are not related" hehehehe.

Makati, Cubao raids net pirated software, pornographic anime
First posted 05:46pm (Mla time) Jan 25, 2006

A RECENT government-led raid in Makati and Cubao, Quezon City has confiscated about 6,000 CDs containing pirated software and pornographic anime movies worth 1.4 million pesos, the Optical Media Board (OMB) said Wednesday.

Agents from the OMB, the Anti-Fraud and Commercial Crimes Division of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group of the Philippine National Police conducted the raid in the branches of the magazine store Filbar's at Glorietta 2 and Greenbelt 1 in Makati City, and branches of Pro-Con Computer Center and Genex Mediatech in AliMall, Cubao, Quezon City.

The joint OMB-PNP operations were part of the Pilipinas Anti-Piracy Team, the government campaign to promote awareness of intellectual property rights and curb piracy in the country.

OMB Chairman Edu Manzano said in a statement that criminal charges are being prepared against the owners of the raided stores.

Sale of pirated software, music, and movies is punishable under the Optical Media Act and the Revised Penal Code.

"We've been repeatedly warning business establishments that pirated and pornographic materials have no place inside malls," said Manzano who joined the raid.

"Some of the stores raided are popular hangouts for children and teenagers, and it was really sad to see sacks of anime porn material present inside at least one store and presumably being sold there. Parents are probably not even aware that their children could have access to pornographic materials so easily, simply by disguising them as cartoon videos," Manzano added.

He stressed that there is no excuse for pirated and pornographic materials to be sold by licensed business establishments inside malls.

Since last year, the OMB has been filing cases against store owners and has sent written warnings to owners of malls that are well-known sources of pirated goods.

The Business Software Alliance (BSA), a non-profit trade association promoting the use of licensed software, lauded government's effort.

"Business owners should not engage in unfair business practices such as selling of counterfeit items like pirated CDs. It is our duty to enforce the law and we hope that the raids serve as a wake up call to those establishments that continue to engage in piracy. Dishonest vendors that will be caught will not only face risk of paying hefty fines but also possible imprisonment," added Police Senior Superintendent Noel Delos Reyes, AFCCD Division Chief.

Arts and music fest posty
I'm glad that the Artists' Den and Guhit Pinoy made a successful booth event last week in Arts and Music Festival, I was supposed to attend the event but I have to zap to Lucena to attend my cousin's first child baptism. Its a good food for the stomach, joy ride and pain in the butt for riding back to Manila.

I don't have much update about what happened to the event, but I'm glad that it was a success even that theres a crisis happening in the metro.

thanks to Jay and Joann of Backdoor for the buzz about the event and il make sure that next year will be another blast..

Black Spidey in Spider-man 3


the news is everywhere, and this is the first of the photo press release and teaser for the upcoming movie, thanks to Super Hero Hype

as for the new look of spidey, many fans complained that they didnt liked the costume and they said that they just colored black on the original costume of Spidey.

for my point of view, i think they did that just to show and never confused some non-comic reader-movie viewers for they might not recognize spider-man in the film, so thats why they colored black on the original costume.

for those who asked questions, why?
research on Venom, the new villain for Spiderman 3

Innovative Benildean Development Program


we will be in DLS-College of St. Benilde tomorrow, for I was invited to do a lecture in SKETCHING, but the problem is that I'm not that good in sketching, so what I did is that i invited someone who can fill in for me, the group that I like to invite didn't responded for the activity, problem 2, that theres no space for exhibition of artworks, coz its a classroom activity for a day.

so thanks to Nicolas Trinidad for taking my invitation
and he's one of the artists I know that is good in sketching.

and here's a sample art from his Deviant ART.


"According to Plato, the world we see is not the real world itself, but rather, just a reflection of the real, perfect world. This is the world we see in our minds.

Compare our world to the inside of a cave. What we see are just shadows of that perfect world, cast upon the cavewall, while we are shackled...

But suppose that one person is able to break free and see the truth outside that cave? Will his fellowmen believe him?

Anyway, really worked hard on this, especially the anatomy... "
- Nicolas Trinidad
