Gary Granada vs. GMA 7 Kapuso

The blogosphere is throwing support to Gary Granada's cause vs. GMA 7 Kapuso Foundation. Mr. Granada is a multi-awarded composer but this time he says he is a victim of abuse. He was first commissioned to do the melody of the Procter and Gamble's promotional gimmick for public school pupils/students. The project went through a series of revisions which, according to reports, discouraged Mr. Granada from continuing it after submitting the last revised melody of the song or lyrics which the client wrote. To make the story short, the client tapped another composer whose final output when played over GMA 7 Kapuso tends to show the melodic semblance and musical structure of Mr. Granada's works. Over Startalk (GMA 7 showbiz program), GMA 7 Kapuso's apologists denied the allegation. Now, you be the judge. Roll VTR! :-)
