Filipino singer and songwriter Ogie Alcasid's song plagiarized

“Parang anak ko na kinidnap, (It's like my child was kidnapped.)” Ogie Alcasid described how he felt when his song “Pangako” was plagiarized by a female Korean singer during the launch of his Ngayon At Kailanman CD: A Tribute to George Canseco CD at th Eastwood Mall Atrium.”He added, “Kuhang-kuha ang song ko. Pareho ang tono at arrangement, yun nga lang in Korean. (The tone and arrangement were the same. Only, it was in Korean.)”

Initially amazed when he first saw it in YouTube, he realized he had been robbed, “My honest feeling, I felt honored and flattered but I felt bad.” He confirmed that GMA7 had already taken action on the problem, “It’s an ongoing thing. Basta kung makakatanggap ako ng pera galing sa mga Koreano sasabihin ko agad sa inyo. (*If ever I get the money from the Koreans, I will tell you immediately.)”

On other hand, Ogie who is an big supporter of P-Noy, confirmed that he had never talked to the newly elected President since his oath-taking. But he said that he as its President and officers of the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit is scheduled to be sworn in and have a dialogue with P-Noy to improve the Filipino music industry especially the OPM this August 13.

just sharing something i learned in college
(btw i'm still in college)

Actually there's no such thing as plagiarism in music since there are only 7 notes and it's possibly to be repeated but if you also plagiarize the lyrics and it's meaning ... it's another issue ... more like stealing XD
