Purpleblue, Nigeria’s leading entertainment solutions company headquartered in Lagos, on Saturday, June 30, 2018 held its debut copyright and music business masterclass for music users and music business practitioners.
The masterclass which was held at LCCI Conference & Exhibition Centre, Alausa, treated topics such as Principles of Copyright & Neighbouring Rights – Cases and Materials, Copyright Licensing in Music Distribution and Reproduction, Language, Formalities and Basic Consideration in Music Licensing, among others.
Speaking after the completion of the masterclass, Intellectual Property expert and one of the facilitators, Chinedu Chukwuji said ‘‘The music business is no doubt a difficult and complex area to understand and navigate, it is also a minefield of misinformation that requires you to tread carefully to make the right decision. To help music users and music business practitioners get through this maze successfully, the Copyright & Music Business Masterclass Series have been designed to provide solutions required and I am deeply grateful to be part of this project. I hope that this masterclass will be a monthly event as there are a lot of copyright and music business education to be done in order to prepare our practitioners for the dynamic changes in the music industry.’’
At the end of the masterclass, certificates were issued to all participants, as well as plaques of honour to the facilitators.
