“Dear DFA ALI MALL, bakit po kayo nagpapalabas ng pirated copy ng A Second Chance dyan? Blatant na po talaga ang paglabag sa batas? Umm.. Government agency po kayo?”

A Second Chance is currently the highest grossing Filipino movie of all time for combined international and local box office sales while Beauty and the Bestie is the highest grossing Filipino film of all time by local box office sales.
Piracy affects pretty much every part of the entertainment industry from big corporations to independent creators. While pirating isn’t always immoral (say you already own the movie), it is illegal, and while many pirates buy more, that doesn’t mean they buy everything they pirate—and that hurts the industry in question, particularly when you’re talking about independent creators.
