This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Tony Okoroji, the Chairman of the society in Abuja Nigeria.

The statement said that the warning came after the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON) threatened to sanction those who play Nigerian musical works without paying royalty to the musicians.

“By the reciprocal representation agreements entered between COSON and other management organisations around the world, every broadcast station in Nigeria is bound to pay copyright royalties for foreign music.

“These organisations are also bound to pay royalties for music belonging to Nigerians as failure to pay exposes Nigeria to both economic and diplomatic sanctions,” the statement said.

It said that broadcast organisations and other commercial users of music in the country could no longer play music belonging to foreign nationals for free.

The statement warned that the society would take legal action against such users to protect the image of the country.

It noted that the society received support from the copyright community around the world for its professionalism in the defence of the intellectual property rights of creative people in Nigeria.

“The image of Nigeria as a lawless nation and the bastion of piracy and other forms of copyright infringement have thereby, begun to abate,” it added.

The statement called on broadcast stations that were yet to reach an agreement with the society on payment of music royalties to do so in order to broadcast music as required by the law. (NAN)
