I'd like to make a little bit of one battle the Philippines is definitely losing against is namely the war against piracy. Why? Here's why- the Philippine government's loose regulations plus the bad economy of the nation is making it that way. Poor economic policies and government corruption is really stampeding like crazy and I have to say the increasing lack of income is making people take bootleg merchandise over real ones. Most of the original items are costing way too much thanks to a bad economy. Piracy can be defeated in a developed country like China but definitely not in a third world country like the Philippines. Only if the economy were better, bootlegs will be less likely to happen.
