Muling natawag ang pansin ng direktor ng “The Kingmaker” na si Lauren Greenfield noong Hulyo 3 dahil sa pangalawang billboard ng dating unang ginang na si Imelda Romualdez Marcos.
Ang pangalawang billboard ay muling naglalaman ng parehong imahe ni Marcos sa pulang Terno at ang parehong mensahe ng kaarawan na mayroong grammatical error.
Dahil dito ay binalaan muli ng American filmmaker ang advertiser ng higanteng birthday billboard para kay Marcos tungkol sa copyright infringement.
Ayon sa tweet ng direktor, “Getting reports of a second copyright infringement in Manila that occurred yesterday as well. Same company involved dooh.ph.”
Sinundan niya ito ng paliwanag ng batas tungkol sa copyright sa Pilipinas.
“Copyright infringement laws in the Philippines are very serious, not to mention the impact that this could have on media companies wanting to use a billboard service that engages in such violations of other people’s IP…” dagdag niya.
Ang pangalawang billboard ay inilagay sa isang foot bridge.
Naglabas naman ang Digital-Out-of-Home (DOOH) Philippines ng official apology ilang oras pagkatapos ng unang tweet ni Greenfield.
Narito ang buong statement ng DOOH:
“Dear Ms. Lauren Greenfield,
First, we would like to sincerely apologize for using your “Kingmaker” image for our billboards.
We must confess that we were unaware of your copyright, and we appreciate that you brought the matter to our attention.

Ang DOOH ay hindi pa naglalabas ng bagong pahayag tungkol sa pinakabagong tweet ni Greenfield.
Ginamit ang larawan mula sa opisyal na poster ng award-winning na dokumentaryo ni Greenfield noong 2019 na “The Kingmaker.”
