"Tuslob Buwa" bawal ng gamitin ng basta-basta matapos applyan ng trademark ng isang resto sa Cebu

Cebu island was rocked by an explosive news Thursday morning after Cebuanos woke up to the news of Azul's successful acquisition of a trademark for "Tuslob Buwa" from the Intellectual Property of the Philippines (IPOP). This means that any unauthorized use of the word, phrase or logo is against the law.
Tuslob Buwa, which literally translates to Dip in Bubbles, is a staple street food in Cebu. It is usually paired with puso or hanging rice.

Azul, a local eatery in Cebu which became more popular after it was featured on a Netflix show for the Tuslob Buwa, published the announcement on their Facebook page which instantly earned the ire of the Cebuano netizens.

According to Sugbo.ph, "Tuslob Buwa (to dip into bubbles) is composed of pig brain, pork liver or intestines (can be optional), onions, oil, soy sauce or fish sauce, and other assorted seasonings. All of these ingredients will be put together in a pan until it boils. This will be best served with your puso (hanging rice) that will be dip into the pan, as its name suggests. It is economical since you only get to pay for the puso you consumed."

Cebuano netizens were quick to slam Azul for its audacity to seek the trademark registration of "Tuslob Buwa" arguing it is a common phrase and should not be owned by a sole entity.

Some netizens also pointed out that Azul didn't even come up with the dish as it is believed to have originated in Pasil, a barangay in Cebu.

"Self proclaimed motherfuckers hahahahhaa lau ra kay nis tinuod inyuha oy tinud anay lng haha," said one netizen.

Some even mocked Azul by creating memes featuring common Cebuano food and embedding the ®️ or T sign with it, pointing its supposed trademark registrations.

Cebuanos also shared some alternatives which, they say, serve way better Tuslob Buwa dishes.

Some netizens also accused Azul of taking advantage the lax regulation on trademark applications and unfair business practices.
I hope this selfish and greedy move is the start of Azul Cebu's downfall
Many Cebuanos also promised to boycott Azul from now onwards.

Do you think Azul's move was unfair? Let us know in the comments.
