Daly City, CA – The largest media and entertainment company in the Philippines has filed suit in US Federal District Court against kissasian.com for damages of over $8M pertaining to Kissasian’s infringement of trademarks and registered copyrights of 27 of ABS-CBN’s television shows and movies including Be My Lady, Born for You, Dolce Amore, You’re Still the One, Etiquette for Mistresses, Ex With Benefits, and many more.

In addition, ABS-CBN Corporation was awarded this week an amended default judgment of nearly $11 million against 11 online streaming websites that the company says regularly showcase pirated versions of its programming.  According to ABS-CBN’s Assistant Vice President of Global Anti-Piracy Elisha Lawrence, “We are stepping up our anti-piracy enforcement in 2017.  These pirate sites often victimise our fans when they access these sites and are later attacked by malware which steals their financial and personal data.  We are going after every pirate wherever they live and operate.  We arrested and sued numerous pirates last year and we plan to quadruple that effort this year.”
