- Ang writer na si Allen Tolosa ay naglabas ng kanyang saloobin tungkol sa diumano'y paggamit ni Fifth Solomon sa titulo ng kanyang sinulat na poem
- Inilabas ng creative writer ang kanyang hinanakit, pagkadismaya, at pagkainis dahil sa nasabing insidente
- "Nakalimutan ko nang kalimutan ka" ay pelikula na pinagbibidahan ni Alex Gonzaga na ang writer at director ay ang dating housemate ni Kuya sa Pinoy Big Brother house na si Fifth Solomon
Ang Facebook post ni Allen Tolosa ay nagtrending at talagang pinag-uusapan na at umabot na nga ito sa iba't-ibang pahayagan kagaya ng 'Fashion Pulis' kung saan una naming nakita ang nasabing balita.
Pero tila wala pa namang reaksyon o komento sina Fifth Solomon at Alex Gonzaga tungkol dito.
Sa nabasa ng KAMI sa post ng writer, saad niya dito ay kinontak daw siya ni Fifth Solomon para gamitin ang isa sa mga sinulat niya na tinatawag niyang "Spoken Poetry" at ito nga ay ang "Nakalimutan Ko Na Yatang Kalimutan Kita" na nilagay din niya ang YouTube link sa nasabing poetry.
Sinabihan daw siya ni Fifth na bibigyan siya ng credit sa pelikula, talent fee, at movie invite.
Ngunit, nagmessage daw ang writer at director ng pelikula ni Alex Gonzaga na matalik na kaibigan din na kaibigan niya at sinabing hindi na daw niya gagamitin ang sulat niya.
Subalit noong inilabas na ang teaser ng nasabing pelikula na shinare ng nakakabatang kapatid ni Toni Gonzaga sa Instagram account niya ay laking gulat, dismaya, at inis niya dahil ang titulo ay magkaparehas.

NAKALIMUTAN KO NANG KALIMUTAN KITA
I don't know what should I feel about this. But right now I'm so disappointed how it turned out. So here's the story and help me assess the situation.
The teaser for the film "Nakalimutan ko nang kalimutan Ka" was just released starring Alex Gonzaga.
Fifth Solomon, the writer and director of the upcoming film, contacted me last year to ask if I can let them use my Spoken Poetry, "Nakalimutan Ko Nang Kalimutan Ka" (link: https://youtu.be/2CCN0oU88dI) produced by The Original Story for his film. I agreed and there was a point when he (Fifth) promised that he would set up a meeting which was cancelled twice and never pushed through. He also said that his EP would contact me about the TF (which i really dont care) which is the same rate they're going to pay for Let Me Be The One. He also said that he would credit me and invite me to the showing of the film (which I also dont care about).
All of a sudden, while I was still a bit hoping that Fifth would contact me again to finalize what the plans are. But Fifth messaged me last Thu that they are not going to use the poem anymore because they already wrote a different one. You can see in the screenshot how fast it was. Now I understand that they don't like it anymore so I thought theyre not going to use it. AND THEY DID. AND IT WAS THE TITLE OF THE FILM.
Now, to make things clear, I dont claim that by law it's a violation because I still am not that knowledgeable with the Copyright law or whatsoever.
BUT HERE'S WHAT I CARE ABOUT:
RESPECT TO CREATIVE MINDS. Filipinos are creative. We can compose artistic literaries that are funny, striking, strong, inspiring, and so much more. But they should be given weight, credit and even promoted. But this is what happens if a creative idea is not given that much weight and respect, people would just dismiss you that easily.
What I am pointing out right now is how I felt as a creative writer and this is what I am fighting for. I hope that people would PAY MORE RESPECT to creative minds out there, (because creating these ideas are not easy, and it doesnt come often) so that they would be encouraged and strengthened to do more.
I hope that those artists who dont gain recognition will not stop in making these beautiful pieces.
As per the movie, Dead Poets Society, "But poetry, beauty, romance, love: these are what we stay alive for."
Ayon naman sa kanya, ang gusto lang niya ay bigyang halaga at respeto ang mga creative writers dahil hindi naman daw biro ang kanilang mga ginagawa.
At sa ibang bahagi, isang social experiment ang ginagawa kung saan pinapakita kung ano ang mga reaksyon ng ating mga kababayan sa isang gay couple na pinapakita ang kanilang love sa public.
