4 telecos sued by GHAMRO
The Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) has sued four Ghanaian telecommunication companies for not paying royalties.
“We are complaining about the use of our works as caller tunes and the performance. Basically, the cases were in different courts and now we want them to be consolidated in one court so that the trial can take place in one court and the consolidation has been granted,” GHAMRO’s lawyer, Opoku Adusei has said.
The lawyer also noted that “we want them to realize that the works of persons who are creative and genius should be rewarded when they are used. We want them to pay royalties for the use of the work since so far, there is no consensus on it. So we want to litigate it through the judicial system.”
The leadership of GHAMRO has committed to fighting piracy and to help take royalties for its members.The telecos sued are MTN, Vodafone, Airtel and Tigo.
