Newsdelivers.com – The problem with the Warkop group, which is said to be imitating Warkop DKI, has not yet come to an end. Alfin, Alfred, and Sepriadi, the three young men who are virally similar to the legend, had received criticism from Indro and the children of the late Dono and Kasino.
This is because Warkop DKI has registered its Intellectual Property Rights (HAKI), so anyone who takes and creates content similar to Warkop DKI for commercial purposes, must first obtain permission from the owner or his heirs. While Warkopi is known to have often been invited to TV and made sketches that are uploaded to YouTube.
Knowing that he had been touched, Warkopi tried to solve the problem. Reported brilio.net from YouTube Langit Entertainment on Saturday (25/9), Warkopi also revealed the initial story of contacting Warkop DKI and plans for the future.

1. Want to show good etiquette.
Alfin, who became the first person to go viral among other Warkopi members, admitted that he had contacted Indro’s son via DM. This is done as a form of showing good faith.
“From the start on TV, I’ve DMed Mr. Indro’s son, Mr. Ale, I want to meet Mr. Ale, please direct me, I ask for permission to make YouTube content. Please, bro, where do I have to go,” said Alfin.
2. Rejected due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
From there, Alfin was directed to contact Indro’s confidant, Pras. Alfin had sent a WhatsApp message and it was answered that Indro had not been able to meet many people, especially at that time Indro had just recovered from Covid-19. Because it continues to be postponed, finally Alfin has not been able to meet Indro until now.
3. Pilgrimage to the tomb of Dono and Casino.
When asked about the desire to make a pilgrimage, the 3 Warkopi members said that they had a plan. They also have found free time for pilgrimage.
“The plan is Saturday tomorrow, previously there was a schedule (on TV), from the beginning there was a pilgrimage plan,” said Sepriadi.
4. Warkop efforts to contact the DKI Warkop pihak
Since knowing that he got a slap, Alfin feels insecure to contact Indro directly.
“I can’t be the first to chat with Pakde Indro, I want to meet you, I’m afraid I’m not polite or something,” said Alfin.
That’s why Alfin had time to ask his management. Through a virtual meeting, Alfin said that his management had contacted Hana (the late Kasino’s daughter) via email.
5. Waiting for news to meet.
After that, Alfin, Alfred, and Sepriadi could only wait for news from their management. They could only wait until now. “I don’t know tomorrow or when, I’ll let you know later.”
6. Follow Indro’s request.
Warkopi openly said that they were ready to fulfill requests Indro Warkop DKI by stopping commercial activities and taking down sketch videos that have been uploaded on YouTube.
“He said it was stopped for a week. Last Saturday there was still a schedule. We also took down the Warkop sketch on our YouTube Patria TV, so commercial activities will be stopped,” concluded Alfred.
