A Filipino cable company in Dipolog City, Orient Cable and Telecommunications Inc., reportedly aired the box-office hit movie “Avengers: Endgame” just a day after its premiere on April 24.
KAMI learned that some netizens shared that a pirated copy of the highly anticipated film was aired on live television.
In a report by the Philippine News Agency (author Gualberto Laput), authorized movie theatre Teatro de Dapitan immediately complained to the local police for Orient Cable's alleged violation of the Anti-Camcording Law.
Under the Republic Act 10088 or the Anti-Camcording Act of 2010, violators will be facing a fine at least P50,000 to P750,000 and imprisonment of 6 months to 6 years and one day.
“We are filing a case against Orient Cable, definitely,” said lawyer Chembeelyn Alpeche-Balucan, who represented Teatro de Dapitan.
However, the Orient Cable has yet to respond on the issue as of posting.
As previously reported by KAMI, the Filipino fans of “Avengers: Endgame” started lining up as early as 4:30 in the morning to catch the first screening of the Marvel film in different Philippine cinemas.
The much-awaited “Avengers: Endgame” is a sequel to the previous films of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) such as “The Avengers”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
