"For accuracy and clarity of the public, the Regional Trial Court clearly found that GMA did not commit any act of copyright infringement or unfair competition against the plaintiffs as it was merely complying with its contractual commitments under its airtime agreement with co-defendant TAPE. In fact, the Court found that GMA was a mere nominal party to TVJ's suit. And the latter never claimed any damages in their complaint as against GMA.

We will comply with the directive of the Court on the airing of Eat Bulaga episodes in our platforms.
Nevertheless, GMA Network will refer the matter to our external counsel to avail of the proper remedies before the appellate courts."

"Eat Bulaga" is the longest-running noontime variety program on Philippine television. The show premiered on July 30, 1979. Its pioneer hosts include showbiz icons Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
