- He also answered the main issue behind giving credit to a person, brand, or company upon buying a product or upon availing one's services
Jessy Mendiola's engagement with her partner, Luis Manzano, has recently been involved in a string of controversies.
The said controversy began after Radiant Lux Jewelry, a jewelry shop, released a statement claiming that the celebrity couple failed to give proper credits regarding the actress's engagement ring.
Following this news, the celebrity couple released a 20-minute vlog on the actress's channel addressing the jewelry shop's claims.
KAMI learned that the said video eventually prompted Atty. Randolf Libayan of BATASnatin to share his insight regarding the matter in one of his latest vlogs.
According to Atty. Libayan, no one is obliged to give credit to a person, brand, or company upon availing one's services or upon buying a product.
"If you avail of a service, or if you buy food, or if you buy products from a person or from a company. Ikaw ba ay required to give credits? The simple answer is no.
"Bakit? Kasi nga 'no, you availed of a service, you bought a product with consideration. Ibig sabihin may pera kang binigay sa kanila.
"You don't have to give credits whatsoever and a particular brand or company or person na pipilitin ka na magbigay ng credit sa kanila dahil dun sa binili mo, hindi tama yun. That's unethical."
Atty. Libayan also added that a person, brand, or company should only be credited if it was part of an agreement or a contract between the seller and the buyer.
The attorney also mentioned in his video that the couple's decision to give credit to Manila Diamond Studio, who was in charge of resetting the ring, is within the bounds of the law.
"Actually naman talaga eh sinabi ni Jessy Mendiola na kasama siya dun sa pag-dedesign nung ring tapos ang minentain yung diamond. Itong diamond na ito ay binili na ni Luis Manzano.
"Binili ni Luis Manzano yan, kapag binili mo na yung diamond, kahit sino man gumawa nito, it becomes your property. Pag naging property mo ang isang bagay, ano ang lagi nating sinasabi? You have the right to abuse.
"Kahit anong gawin mo diyan sa property na yan, including putting it in a separate o papaayos sa iba tapos i-credit mo yun iba sa pagpapaayos nila that is completely within the bounds of law. Pwedeng pwede yun."
Atty. Libayan even went as far as to compare the ring's modification to that of a person who bought a car and had it modified as well.
At one point in the video, the attorney shared his thoughts over Radiant Lux Jewelry's decision to release a statement regarding the celebrity couple's engagement ring.
"Pag titignan mo talaga, I think, in my opinion, yung Radiant Lux Jewelry, I think they were too quick to judge. Hindi nila agad ni-research ng maigi na nagkaroon na ng modifications dun sa jewelry na yun."
