I remember explaining to a very confused classmate that piracy was bad and it was stealing. I remember getting very frustrated because he could not seem to grasp what I was saying, It seemed odd to me that he had no idea that he was stealing intellectual property. “How could he have not known?”, I was asking myself the whole time.
Turns out, most everyone in this country either do not know, do not care, or do not bother to think about it. Having a parent whose work dabbled in IP, I was not part of that majority. Having lived with random lectures on the topic and a strict no pirated rule in our house, I grew to understand and care about this issue.
Not quite sure what me and my sister are supposed to be. Obviously we got too carried away by the whole match-matchy thing that we lost sight of what we originally wanted to dress up as (which was supposed to be Tweedle dum and Tweedle dee).
Today on Rappler's #TalkThursday episode, Jose Ramon Albert, Secretary General of the National Statistical Coordination Board spoke on poverty and statistics in the country. He mentioned that income inequality exists in the Philippines, that there's a divide between the rich and the poor.
