The Governing Board of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO) has been set aside.
Some aggrieved members of the organization went to court for redress recently.
After about a year of legal tussle, the organization won the case in February which paved the way for the Board elections on 15th March 2022.
The aggrieved members led by Steven Boahene, according to Rex Owusu Marfo, the Interim Director, appealed against the decision.
Mr Omar disclosed at a press briefing covered by Zionfelix.net that the trial Judge duly set aside on Tuesday 19th July 2022 pending the determination of the substantive matter. Thus, by implication, the Governing Board has been set aside.
“I will like to take this opportunity to assure our members and the general public that, GHAMRO is vigorously pursuing its mandate in terms of Licensing music users, collecting the said fees and distributing same. Further to Section 30 of the L.I1962, GHAMRO has duly submitted its report as required under law to the Regulators, the Attorney Generals Department through the Copyright Office.
“We therefore urge all music users Radio, TV, Pubs, Night Clubs, Restaurants, Banks, shopping malls, Barbering & Hairdressing salons etc. to apply to GHAMRO for a license under section 36 to enable GHAMRO fulfill its mandate to distribute royalties to Right Owners.,” he stated.
