Cartoon Network Philippines Taps Cosplayers

Good to see Cartoon Network Philippines eschew traditional fan-disengaged models in favor of credible consumer evangelist cosplayers.



Filipina cosplayer Nejin is tapped to portray the Yellow Dino Ranger at mall tours.

Fair use, Rayson.

kailangan ko nga palang alalahanin na kaunti lang ang gumagana sa utak mo kaya palagi mong mami-miss ang point.

tungkol sa ethics ang pinaguusapan natin. the fact na naglagay si jin ng watermark sa picture na yan ay pinararamdam niya na ayaw niyang may gumagamit ng pictures niya ng hindi nagpapaalam. the fact na nagkikita tayo sa cosplay communtiy ng madalas at na-offend mo yung tao dahil ayaw niyang malagay sa isang blog na may picture ng isang lalaking may manboobs.

oo nga, wala kang ginawang illegal. pero may ginawa kang immoral. Pinapakita mo lang na wala kang kuwentang tao.

kunwari sa pilipinas ang pepper spray ay hindi considered as a weapon, so kung i-pepper spray kita next con hindi mo ako pwedeng ipahuli. pero pissed off ka nun, diba? parang ganun yung ginawa mo. saya 'no?

kapal din ng peys mo noh?

hindi ka ba marunong mag-ask man lang ng permission?

bobits grabe!

Kapal nga ng peys niya.

Hay naku, hindi rin naman niya tayo maiintindihan e. Sinasabi-sabi ni Abundong Pilipino siya, Inglesero naman! At lagi pang mali-mali.

Pinaglihi ka talaga sa pamilyang Bush, Mike Abundo. Kung bakit pa kasi ayaw mong aminin e!

@ rayson: Maaari rin siyang kasuhan para sa child abuse kung sakaling wala pa sa tamang gulang si Bb. Joson. At kung mangyari 'yon makikilala na talaga nang sandaigdigan kung gaano kalaswa, kawalang-galang at kawalang-kwentang-tao itong si Mike Abundo.

Hmmm... just passing by.

@ Rayson

Mr. Abundo is wrong. Can't help but notice. This is NOT covered by FAIR USE.

As Mr. Abundo quite (im)properly quoting Sec. 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act, there is a limit to copyright.

If you will read the explanation Mr. Abunudo hyperlinked:

"The distinction between “fair use” and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission."

FURTHERMORE, the right to have one's work attributed to him or the RIGHT OF ATTRIBUTION is a moral right under our laws. Moral rights are independent of the economic rights under Copyright laws. Moral rights include the right of attribution, which includes the right to have his name on his work as well as the right to say that a work attributed to someone is not his work.

As a lawyer, Mr. Abundo should hold himself above this petty hiding under the ambiguities of the law and as the RIGHT OF ATTRIBUTION rests with the author of the work, he should be kind enough to acknowledge their moral right to their work.

And as what he himself pointed out:

...Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material DOES NOT substitute for obtaining permission. (emphasis supplied)

Remember the bully that took a candy from a young kid? We have one right here.
