Members of Nigeria’s Musical Copyright Society visit South Africa for Training

In a beautiful example of cross-continent collaboration, CISAC (Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers), SAMRO (South African Music Rights Organisation) and SARRAL (South African Recording Rights Association Limited) have sponsored two members of Musical Copyright Society of Nigeria (MCSN) to attend a training in South Africa.

The Vanguard reports that the training is focusing on a new copyright administration system called C-Basic that “enables copyright societies to upload data in a standard form for all sister societies.”  Afro-Leo was unable to find any further information about this new system and can only relay that the Vanguard views the CISAC course as a positive investment in the future of Nigeria’s copyright system.  If any readers have more information about the new administration system, please let Afro-Leo know.
