TV hosts and comedians Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey De Leon, collectively known as TVJ, turned emotional when they announced on Friday that they won in the “Eat Bulaga” trademark dispute against TAPE Incorporated.

In a Facebook live post, Vic shared the news that Tito received an email regarding the Makati regional trial court’s decision on the copyright infringement case filed by the TVJ group against TAPE.

“In simple terms, we won,” Vic said.

“We are the rightful owners of ‘Eat Bulaga.’ Thank you to all those who stayed and prayed for us,” added Tito.

Tito detailed the court’s decision, including its order to the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines to cancel TAPE Inc.’s trademark registration for the name “Eat Bulaga.”

In May last year, the trio, along with other hosts, left TAPE Inc. and moved to TV5, using the name “E.A.T” temporarily while awaiting the court’s decision.
