ABS-CBN TV Patrol Uses Photo Without Permission?

ABS-CBN's primetime news program TV Patrol allegedly removed the watermark and used a photo for its report without prior consent from the owner.


Kit Stephen Agad, a photographer from the University of the Philippines (UP) Photography Society, expressed dismay via social media last Tuesday, January 6.

"It would've been nice if you (ABS-CBN TV Patrol) contacted me about using my image," a post on his Facebook timeline read.



The OPTICS member attached his original photo of two Cebu Pacific airplanes on the ground and a screencap of the report showing the same image sans his watermark.

It's unknown yet if the complaint has reached the Kapamilya network.
