Steven Bansil, a content creator who gained fame for his parody videos, has received a "copyright complaint" from Raffy Tulfo in Action.
On Wednesday, June 16, KAMI learned that Steven released a video entitled 'What Really Happened' on his YouTube channel.
In the video, Steven revealed that a "copyright complaint" was sent to him due to his parody video on the JaMill episode of RTIA.
"Kasi po, nangyari ito nung April, nag-upload ako ng video about dun sa issue ng JaMill. But again, it was in good faith.
"Parang I just wanted to lighten the mood kasi medyo seryoso yung pinagdaanan nila. So I wanted to lighten the mood and kilala niyo naman yun mga ginagawa kong videos sa Facebook," he said.
However, while his parody video was indeed edited, Steven said that the clip was still from RTIA.
"Ang ginawa ko, in-edit ko yung some parts of their video kung saan ininterview yung mga taong involved dun sa issue na yun and I put myself there as Pedra.
"Unfortunately, nag-file po sila ng copyright doon. Some of the clips, kahit edited siya, eh sa kanila pa rin."
According to Steven, after receiving the complaint, his newer videos are no longer monetized.
"After kong makatanggap ng ganung copyright complaint from them, hindi na po na-monetize yung mga videos ko, yung mga bagong upload ko. Yung mga dati na lang yung meron."
The vlogger shared that he was also told that his page could be deleted as well, "Kasi sobrang laking factor po nito and sinabihan din po ako ng Facebook na it could lead to deletion of my page.
"Yung page ko na pinaghirapan ko for more than 3 years, parang mawawala lang ng ganun ganun dahil lang sa isang video."
"Ito po yung pinagkakakitaan ko, ito po yung trabaho ko tapos mawawala sa akin ng ganun," he also added.
Despite his situation, Steven revealed that the team of RTIA actually reached out to him and apologized about the matter.
"Tumawag na rin po sa akin yung Raffy Tulfo in Action at nakausap ko po si Miss Sharee, in-explain po nila sa akin ang nangyari na yun nga po, napabilang po yun video ko sa mga nag-copyright or gumamit.
"Madami raw po and unfortunately napabilang yun isa sa akin. They also apologized sa akin sa laki ng epekto ng report na ginawa nila and they wanted to extend help also on my end by retracting the complaint sa Facebook."
In the end, Steven also extended his apologies to RTIA regarding the issue.
"Nakakapanlumo to start all over again. Gusto ko lang mag-apologize again sa Raffy Tulfo in Action, and moving forward, I promise not to use any of your videos sa aking page or sa channel.
"Para maiwasan na po yun mga ganitong issue. Again, kasalanan ko po 'to, hindi niyo po kasalanan 'to, you guys are just doing your part.
"Parang wala lang po akong kalaban laban kasi na sa 18 million po yung page niyo tas yung akin wala pa po sa 1/4 ng kung gaano kalaki yun sa inyo.
"Kaya ang laking epekto rin po sa akin nito na talagang hindi po ako ma-prioritize sa part na ito kasi sobrang liit ko lang po na tao."
