[Historical Documents] Copyright Registrations from 1986 (and potential Philippine lost media?)

EDIT (23 April 2020): Made a Lost Media Wiki forum post quoting this post almost verbatim, in case anyone wants to mount a search effort. Link at https://forums.lostmediawiki.com/thread/4542/songs-jerry-dadap-filipino-composer

Note: Every once in a while, I take breaks from bar review to look at historical documents available in the library where I review. Hundreds of Official Gazettes and legislative deliberations lay untouched and unopened, waiting for a historian to open them. I am sharing here in my blog whatever I find interesting, to pique the curiosity of others who may want to look further.


I wonder who Jerry I. Dadap, Jr. is/was and why he has many unpublished songs. All these songs could be lost media, which I earlier talked about. Not sure if Dadap is the same person as Michael Dadap. They could be since the Tumblr page I found on “Jerry Dadap” has the same information as “Michael Dadap” on WIkipedia. (Please forgive me, I just did a cursory search).

Also note the interesting movie titles by Viva Home Entertainment.

It appears all the registrations were made on February 1986, before the regime change.

Source is the Official Gazette, 14 April 1986 issue.

Nasa ibaba ang isang madalang na Proklamasyon. “Madalang” ito dahil hindi ito nasa wikang Ingles. Nilagdaan ito ng Pangulong Corazon Aquino bilang pagtakda sa 2 Abril bilang Araw ni Balagtas.

Ang larawang ito ay mula sa Official Gazette, isyu ng 7 Abril 1986.

This was the letter of instruction by President Ferdinand E. Marcos dated 22 September 1972 ordering the takeover of media after the declaration of martial law.

[Historical Documents] Seal of the Batasang Pambansa

I initially took these photos to upload to the English Wikipedia article on the Batasang Pambansa, but had no free time to crop and upload it there. I’ll just upload the raw images, unedited, here, and let someone else do the work. Of course, my prior permission and proper crediting are required. “CTTO” (credits to the owner) is not enough.

The Batasang Pambansa was the legislature under the 1973 Marcos-era Constitution.

Images were taken from the History of Bills and Resolutions, Fourth Regular Session, First Batasan by the Batasang Pambansa.
