General Manager of Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), Mr. Chinedu Chukwuji, says the music industry in Nigeria will not wait for the profound excitement generated by the recently signed COSON-BON/IBAN agreement on music royalty to die down before commencing the enforcement of the agreement.

According to Chukwuji who was speaking to some journalists in his office early in the week, the terms and conditions of the agreement are clear.

He further stated that the rates are specific and the times and modes of payment are clearly stated so that no broadcasting organization in Nigeria can claim not to know what to do.

The COSON GM stated that the organization bills made in accordance with the agreement are ready. Any station which receives a COSON bill should endeavour to honour it promptly.

“We want to make sure that our industry begins to benefit from the new relationship we have forged with the broadcast industry in Nigeria. It is a win-win situation for all”.
