IP Rights in Ghana’s Creative Industry: Finding the Economic Pathway

Published

on

Collectively, the creative arts ecosystem generates rich social, cultural and economic benefits that supports the livelihood of the creators, enablers and investors.

 

Maximizing benefits is very key in sustaining the creative arts industry. The Robert Smith Law Group, in partnership with Ministry of Tourism and Creative Arts and the Attorney General’s Office last year December organized the Second Law for Society Public Seminar Series, with focus on intellectual property rights in Ghana’s creative arts ecosystem.

 

It was quiet a packed day and the deliberations which were anchor of the broader theme: How to Monetize Benefits for Creative Artistes – focused on finding solutions to the teething challenges confronting creative arts.

 

Chaired by the Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creative Arts, Hon. Mark Okraku Mantey, the programme witnessed high-level industry players including talents, enablers and investors attending. The Hon. Deputy Attorney General, Ms. Diana Assonaba Dapaah was the Guest Speaker.

 

The Series had two panel discussions, The first panel discussed the experiences of notable industry personnel on IP right benefits while the second focused on the legal regime of the Copyright Protection in Ghana and solutions to issues associated with the current IP monetization initiates.

 

Among the key panelists were Boomplay General Manager Elizabeth Ntiamoah, Lynx Entertainment CEO Richie Mensah and venerable artiste Okyeame Kwame. The discussions focused on experiences with Intellectual Property (IP) earnings, the Copyright Protection regime in Ghana and solutions to the issues associated with current IP monetization initiatives.

 

In his welcoming address, Bobby Banson, Lead Counsel at the Robert Smith Law Group reiterated the focus of the discussion as one aimed at proffering solutions to issues associated with royalty collection in the creative art industry.

 

 

Maximizing IP Rights in a Digital Era

In her keynote address, the Deputy Attorney General, Ms. Diana Assonaba Dapaah, begun by commending the Robert Smith Law Group for organizing the programme. She emphasized the pressing need for creative talents to maximize their IP rights in the advent of new technologies.

 

She further noted that notwithstanding budgetary constraints, the government is still committed to fulfilling all his promises to Ghanaians.

 

The Deputy Attorney General stated that issues with royalty collection emanate from two main causes – Lack of transparency in the collection and distribution system and a failure to adapt to modern technology.

 

She assured that Government, in accordance with the Copyright Act 2005 (Act 650) and the Copyright Regulations, 2021 (LI 1962) was in the process of studying the current regime of royalty collection and payment and would soon commence stakeholder engagement to ensure a licensing regime that accords with the rights conferred under the laws.

 

Finally, she urged for effective stakeholder engagement, promising that government would welcome the policy suggestions that would made at the forum.

 

Copyright Literacy and Protection

 

Okyeame Kwame spoke on some of the benefits he has derived from the use of his IP. He revealed that music gave him the ability to build a brand and a hope, adding that it became his profession as well as a means of expression. However, his works are yet to commensurate with his financial gain.

 

He noted that in the past 24 years, he had not made any economic gains from royalties on his creative work, his income streams have been from performances and streaming.

 

Richie Mensah who has wealth of experience in his diverse roles in different levels of the music industry, stated that throughout his progression from performer, to producer, and finally record label manager his efforts have not translated into money despite the massive impact on the industry.

 

He was yet to make a single penny from his first advert which he made in the early 2000s. Talent, he lamented, is usually bullied. He noted that there is a huge untapped money stream in entertainment that artistes are not capitalizing on even though digital sales are soaring in some countries that is not the case in Ghana.

 

Boomplay Manager Elizabeth Ntiamoah whose company operates in Ghana, Nigeria, and Kenya noted that Ghanaian artistes are not as insistent on their rights as other jurisdictions. This is because, compared to Kenya and Nigeria, Ghanaian artistes have little copyright literacy.

 

Elizabeth Ntiamoah, however, noted that there is an increasing awareness and Ghanaian artistes are starting to understand their IP rights and building the voice to demand it.

 

She noted that the problem also stems from a lack of technological literacy. “Even classical artistes do not know how to upload songs unto Boomplay.” This, she lamented, was a sad issue.

 

Monetizing and Understanding IP Rights

 

The second panel discussed Maximizing benefits for Creative artistes. The panelists were Nana Yaw Sompa, a Private Legal Practitioner; Abraham Adjetey, GHAMRO President and Nii Ofoli Yartey, popularly known as Seven, a well-known music right advocate and thought leader.

 

The discussion begun with an overview of the legal regime on copyright protection in Ghana. Mr. Sompa Esq, gave an insightful brief of Copyright laws.

 

  1. There are two types of IP rights: Economic Right and Moral Right. Economic Right is the right to make monetary gain from one’s IP. According to the learned author Andrew Amegatcher in his book ‘Ghanaian Law of Copyright’, economic rights are the rights of exploitation of the work and the resulting right of receiving remuneration there from.

 

  1. The Moral Right constitutes the right to receive authorship and referencing for one’s creative works. Per section 6 the author of protected copyright work has the sole moral right
    1. to claim authorship of the work and in particular to demand that the name or pseudonym of the author be mentioned when any of the acts referred to in section 5 are done in relation to the work, and
    2. to object to and seek relief in connection with any distortion, mutilation or other modification of the work where that act would be or is prejudicial to the reputation of the author or where the work is discredited by the act.

 

  1. Under the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works (Berne Convention) of 1886 of which Ghana is a signatory, Article 11bis, music right holders have the exclusive right to authorize,
    1. the broadcasting of their works or the communication thereof to the public by any other means of wireless diffusion of signs, sounds or images;
    2. any communication to the public by wire or by rebroadcasting of the broadcast of the work, when this communication is made by an organization other than the original one;
    3. the public communication by loudspeaker or any other analogous instrument transmitting, by signs, sounds or images, the broadcast of the work.

 

  1. These set of rights form part of our laws in Ghana, and is reproduced in Sections 5 and 6 of the Copyrights Act 2005, Act 690.

 

  1. Section 5 of Act 690 grants the author of protected copyright work, the exclusive economic right to do or authorize the doing of the following;
    1. the reproduction of the work in any manner or form,
    2. the translation, adaptation, arrangement or any other transformation of the work,
    3. the public performance, broadcasting and communication of the work to the public,
    4. the distribution to the public of originals or copies of the work by way of first sales or other first transfer of ownership, and
    5. the commercial rental to the public of originals or copies of the work.

 

  1. To aid artistes fully enjoy the economic rights associated with their work, Act 690 allowed for the creation of various associations to collect the monies due to artistes from their work.

 

  1. Section 49 of Act 690 provides which is the basis on which artistes were allowed to form associations Collective administration societies of their choice to protect their IP:
    1. Authors, producers, performers and publishers may form collective administration societies for the promotion and protection of their interest.
    2. A collective administration society may, acting on the authority of the owner of a right, collect and distribute royalties and any other remuneration accruing to the owner.
    3. The Minister may, by legislative instrument, make Regulations for the formation, operation and administration of societies.”

 

Mr. Abraham Adjetey of GHAMRO spoke on the impact of Section 49 of Act 690. He stated that even though the overarching regime of copyright protection had already been set up under Section 49, it is still not fully operational. He attributed this lapse to lack of governmental enforcement measures and also Artistes’ lack of interest in IP education initiatives. In very strong language he made a case of the forum, pointing out that very few stars were minded to attend the programme.

 

Nii Ofoli Yartey (Seven) reiterated the concerns about the poor enforcement framework for royalty collection. He however placed his blame on GHAMRO instead of the Attorney General’s Department. He insisted that the Attorney General having licensed GHAMRO to fix royalty collection rates and collect same, GHAMRO had the proper authority to enforce royalty collection. He called for proper accountability and admonished the union for not doing its best.

 

Finally, he reiterated the need for stakeholder engagement to map out sustainable solutions to the issues raised at the forum.

 

Finding the Pathway

 

A summary of the insights and recommendations made at the forum are as follows:

 

  1. Enhance copyright literacy among creatives
  2. Talents must understand the role of technology in enhancing IP rights
  3. The need for rigorous governmental framework to enforce copyright laws.
  4. Create awareness of among Creatives on their IP rights.
  5. The Attorney Generals Department must control collection agencies by revoking licenses if creatives are not paid.
  6. There is a need for a stakeholder meeting to draw a roadmap to change the current trend.

Tips to Keep in Mind When Seeking a Slot Agent Website

Published

on

Finding a slot agent website might seem like an easy task, but there are many things that you should keep in mind when searching for one. Many important factors will ultimately determine if the website is right for you. These factors include how much customer service they offer, what types of games they offer, and how well they communicate.

 

Here are some tips to consider when searching for a website.

 

Customer Service

 

Online gamers are extremely loyal. This is a good thing for the owners of slot websites because they don’t have to worry about losing their customers. If they offer customer service that is fast, friendly, and accessible, then they will easily win customers and retain their existing ones.

 

A slot agent website offers round-the-clock customer service. This means that they should be available to answer any questions and concerns you may have. They should also be available to answer questions about their games and provide a game review.

 

The people you contact at the website you are looking to hire must have enough customer service skills to answer questions and make it easy for you to book a slot online. It is also important that the language of the person answering the questions is understandable, as this will save you a lot of time if you do have to contact them.

 

Games offered

 

When searching for a slot agent website, you should also consider the games they offer. Do they offer the same types of games that are available on the biggest online casino sites? You should also make sure that they offer games with easy payout structures.

 

Another important consideration is whether they offer games that are popular and not too complex.

 

A lot of websites focus on providing games and online gambling for children, but a good slot agent should also have games of all types to offer. While adult games may appeal more to many players, the website you use must have a variety of games, as not every player prefers adult games.

 

Many slot agents only offer the highest quality games, while others do offer a wider variety of games. When deciding which games to play, make sure you are playing only games that you know and trust. Choose slot agents with games that are at least as good as the top games.

 

Payment Option

 

To process your purchases, many online casinos employ a service called PayPal. PayPal is a payment processor that needs you to supply a bank account number and some other personal information before it can give you money to wager with. You will be able to see the charge on your credit card bill if you use PayPal to pay for your bets, but only if you have unrestricted access to your PayPal account.

 

Communication

 

The most important thing to consider when looking for a slot agent website is the type of communication they offer their customers. This includes their ability to communicate by email and phone. Look for a site that allows you to set up a free account that will allow you to contact them, and do so quickly and easily. You will also want to find a site that has a good reputation, and a good reputation only comes if the site can reply quickly to your messages

 

Achieving a great site is not easy. Sometimes you might be so busy with life that you just can’t devote enough time to your site. If you want to get an excellent slot agent website, you should consider outsourcing to help it get to the top of your priority list. Most websites need a lot of work and updates that can’t be handled by a single person.

 

A local slot agent is probably the best option for you, especially since they can keep your customer base happy and growing. This will keep you from having to maintain a website that you are not confident in.

Your CBD guide: Top 6 things to know about CBD products

Published

on

Are you thinking about using CBD? Read these top six things about using CBD products first! 

Very few conversations are safe from the inevitable CBD mentions these days. Wherever you turn your head, you see something related to this new hype natural remedy. Your social media friends probably post about it, news headlines mention new studies around it, and you can also easily spot a few products that contain it on supermarket shelves. 

So, why is everybody talking about CBD? Well, as numerous studies support CBD’s benefits and uses, everybody is looking at CBD as a miracle CBD that can help them manage their medical condition in a more natural way. 

Now, if you’re thinking about using CBD yourself, you likely have dozens of questions about it, from what it is to what it does and how to use it. If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place. This article explores the six top things you need to know about CBD products. 

  1. CBD what? 

First things first, let’s paint a clearer picture of what CBD is to leave no room for confusion. 

CBD, short for cannabinoid, is one of the most prevalent compounds in the cannabis or hemp plant. CBD is typically the second most prevalent after THC, which is often mentioned as the cousin of CBD. 

Now, CBD and THC are very different in many ways. And it all comes down to how they interact with the brain’s receptors. One essential difference is the fact that CBD doesn’t produce the “high” feeling like THC does. In fact, studies have shown that CBD can work against the intoxicating effects of THC, which is why it is also known as a natural remedy for substance addiction. 

CBD and THC have both been found to have plenty of medical benefits for a number of conditions. CBD is known to help with anxiety and depression, heart conditions, chronic pain, seizure disorder, and many other conditions. But is it all true? To answer this, let’s move forward to our second thing to know about CBD. 

  1. CBD’s benefits are backed up by science 

While CBD’s exact mechanism of action in the body is still unclear, several medical studies have shown its potential benefits for different medical conditions. 

There are studies to support CBD’s ability to treat pain by reducing inflammation and affecting the endocannabinoid receptor activity. There’s also scientific evidence that backs this compound’s ability to reduce symptoms related to mental health disorders like anxiety and depression. Lowering blood pressure is one way CBD can help with reducing anxiety. What’s more, CBD was also found to be useful in reducing PTSD-related symptoms such as nightmares. 

Several other studies have also found that CBD can be a natural remedy for a number of other conditions, from alleviating cancer-related symptoms to having neuroprotective properties, lowering high blood pressure, and many others. 

So, it’s safe to say that CBD’s popularity isn’t just false media hype. Many of its benefits are actually supported by medical studies. 

  1. CBD is a non-intoxicating substance 

Another essential thing to know about CBD is that it is a non-intoxicating substance. As mentioned above, the “high” feeling is given by the THC compound in the cannabis plant. CBD doesn’t have the same properties. 

Yet, while CBD is non-intoxicating, it is a psychoactive substance. More precisely, any substance, including coffee, that is known to interact with brain receptors in some way is considered a psychoactive substance. 

  1. Hemp-derived CBD products are legal throughout most of the world  

So far, so good. But, you’re likely wondering if using CBD would get you in trouble with the authorities. Well, there’s no easy answer on this one, but generally, CBD is legal throughout most of the world. 

More precisely, in most parts of the world, hemp-derived CBD products are legal as long as they contain less than 0,3 or 0,2% THC. However, cannabis-derived CBD products are only legal in those countries where medicinal or recreational use of cannabis is legal. 

Make sure to check with your country’s laws regarding the legal status of CBD products. 

  1. CBD products might not work for you 

You’ve probably heard a story or two about CBD not doing anything to your friend or a social media peer who made an angry post about it. Well, that’s true, CBD might not work for everybody, and there are a few reasons for that, including: 

  • The user doesn’t have a medical condition that CBD can help with
  • The CBD product is of poor-quality
  • The user is taking the wrong dosage of CBD
  • The user is not giving the substance enough time to act
  • CBD may simply not work for the user (Yes, this is also possible)

As the experts from CBD Planet explain, “If you’re planning to start using CBD and make sure that you’ll get the results you want, make sure to buy from a reliable seller, that CBD can help with what you want to treat, and that you’re taking the right dosage based on your condition and body characteristics.” 

  1. There are various CBD products out there 

As CBD started to grow in popularity over the last few years, we’re seeing it added o all sorts of products. With the number of users growing, sellers responded to the growing interest by creating various CBD products that can suit everybody’s personal preferences. 

More precisely, while CBD oil is the most popular product to take CBD, it is not the only one available on the market. Today, you can also find CBD tinctures, topicals, vape juices, skincare products, and even toothpicks. 

Now, when it comes to choosing which product to use, it’s mostly a matter of personal preference. For example, if you don’t like the earthy taste of CBD oil, you can choose vape juice, CBD gummies, or drinks. Plus, you also need to consider your medical condition. For example, for treating pain, it makes more sense to use a topical CBD product to apply it directly to the painful area.
