Pnoy has just given his BLESSINGS to video piracy.
He is not firing Presidential Political Adviser Ronald Llamas, even though the official had been CAUGHT IN THE ACT of buying pirated DVDs.in a mall in Quezon City.
Not only that, Pnoy says he continues to trust Llamas, for the simple reason that what had happened was not connected to his being a political adviser,
So, even ILLEGAL merchandise can be ACCEPTABLE in the ‘tuwid na daan.’
Following that line of thinking, any other Malacanang official can patronize ANYTHING UNLAWFUL and get away with it, as long as it’s not related to his or her job.
For example, Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda can go into and bet on illegal cockpits or casinos, or his deputy Abigail Valte can buy counterfeit bags and shoes and it’’s perfectly alright for Pnoy.
Video pirates and counterfeiters NOW KNOW who to sell their products to.
As long as the buyer is one of Pnoy’s close aides, they have nothing to worry about.
Talk about anti-piracy campaigns.
With his RETENTION and CONTINUED TRUST on Llamas, Pnoy has made it CRYSTAL CLEAR that his ‘tuwid na daan’ is nothing more than a SELECTIVE implementation of the law.
So don’t be surprised, people if movie producers suddenly SLOW DOWN or SUSPEND production INDEFINITELY.
Simply because if video pirates and their patrons , like Llamas, can do their thing and get away with it, there’s no sane reason for them to continue business.
Jobs in the industry and the livelihood of suppliers will be at risk Economic displacement won’t be far behind.
Whoever will be affected will be ON THEIR OWN.
Believe me, Pnoy or any other Malacanang boss will not take any blame when that happens.
I wonder if Kris Aquino even tried to fight for her colleagues in the movie industry over the Llamas fiasco. I wonder if she even said anything at all, since it’s them who will be affected.
Better find out, movie idols. You should know where you stand. 30
