Digital Music Licensing To Begin in Nigeria

A coalition of the stakeholders in the Nigerian music industry and the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), at the first Nigerian Digital Music Licensing Summit held last year in Lagos set up a working committee to establish the rules and structure for Digital Music Licensing in Nigeria.

The committee under the Chairmanship of Mr. Tony Okoroji of COSON convened a meeting on Thursday, October 9, 2014 to begin deliberation on the proposed rules and tariff to be adopted for implementing digital music licensing. Stillwaters Law Firm is represented in the committee.

We shall closely monitor and relay the coalition’s decision in subsequent publications.
