Tito Sotto shares the lesson he learned from Eat Bulaga issue: “Hindi lahat ng tao katiwa-tiwala katulad namin”

Tito Sotto shared the lesson he learned after leaving Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) and now having deprived of their right to use the title Eat Bulaga.

During the media conference that happened on June 20, 2023, Sotto said that he learned that not everyone should be trusted after he discovered that the Jalosjos family who owned TAPE registered Eat Bulaga’s trademark as their own.

“Malaking bagay talaga ‘yung trust, tiwala.. Siguro isa sa mga lesson namin dito, hindi lahat ng tao katiwa-tiwala katulad namin,” said Sotto. “Kasi kami kapag sinabi naming black, black, pag sinabi naming white, white.”

According to him, they were not aware of the plan of TAPE to register Eat Bulaga’s trademark.

“Hindi namin alam na noong 2011, nag file ng trademark na kanila raw ‘yung Eat Bulaga, ni hindi sinama ‘yung pangalan namin, anong ibig sabihin ‘non, you did it in bad faith,” he said.

He explained that they still have the right to use Eat Bulaga title because TAPE had only registered for a trademark for ‘goods and merchandise’ and not for copyright.

“The copyright belongs to Joey de Leon,” he insisted.

Sotto believed that it would only take time to know if they were the rightful owner of Eat Bulaga title.

“Eat Bulaga is TVJ, TVJ is Eat Bulaga,” he said.

He also confirmed that Joey already filed for a trademark for Eat Bulaga despite being unnecessary because it’s already a public knowledge that he’s the one who created the title of the noontime show.
