Members of Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) from different parts of the South East who met at a great Stakeholders Forum at Rockview Hotel in Owerri, the capital of Imo State on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 have called for close cooperation between COSON and the Nigerian Copyright Commission for the good of the Nigerian creative sector and the Nigerian nation.
At the massively attended forum, the COSON Stakeholders called on the leadership of the Nigerian Copyright Commission to immediately remove each and every shackle placed on COSON so that the organization can continue to generate income for its thousands of members and continue to be a proud ambassador of the Nigerian nation in the international copyright community and an important vehicle for local and foreign investment in the Nigerian music industry.
The COSON Stakeholders in Owerri also called on the leadership of the Nigerian Copyright Commission to be reminded that COSON continues to be the shining flagship of the Nigerian copyright system providing succor to thousands of people across the country and that the NCC was established to undertake those activities that uplift the lives of practitioners in the copyright sector and not to be seen in any way to be engaged in the narrow minded destruction of what is undeniably, the brightest institution ever built by the Nigerian creative industry.
The COSON Stakeholders in Owerri also expressed tremendous pride in COSON which they resolved is a first-class organization emulated by many across the continent and which organization has positioned itself to continue to provide succor now and in the future to all genuine persons within the Nigerian music industry.
The COSON Stakeholders in Owerri similarly commended the COSON Board and Management for their steadfastness, maturity and comportment in ensuring that COSON continues to be the best managed, most transparent and accountable organization in the history of the Nigerian creative industry.
