Motivational Speaker Rendon Labador didn’t feel motivated by the new title of the noontime show handled by Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc.
It can be recalled that the Marikina RTC ordered TAPE Inc. and GMA Network to stop using the Eat Bulaga title following the copyright infringement charges filed by Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon, and Jeny Ferre against them.
TAPE quickly followed the court order and changed its title for its Saturday episode, removing the Eat Bulaga logo and title.
The hosts of the Kapuso noontime show announced their new title, ‘Tahanang Pinakamasaya.’
However, the new title received mixed reactions from the netizens, including Rendon.
“Sobrang panget ng pangalan! sino naka isip niyan? TAG LINE tawag diyan hindi TITLE yan,” said Rendon.
“Ang daming magagandang title yan pa tlaga naisip ninyo?” he added.
Meanwhile, TAPE Inc. said that they’re still planning to reverse the court’s decision.
They also criticized the decision and called it ‘surprising.’
“Initial reaction, among others, we were surprised that the court ruled on trademark ownership, trademark infringement and cancellation of trademark when the case pending in court is copyright infringement,” Atty. Maggie Abraham-Garduque, the lawyer of TAPE said.
“Worst these cases for trademark ownership and cancellation of trademark are pending on appeal before the IPO. We will definitely file an appeal to this decision,” she added.
