Telecommunication companies that use artists’ work through ring back tones will soon pay heavily for the service.
The copyright amendment bill now heading to the committee of the whole house, before it is passed into law provides that the artist should get fifty two percent of the revenue share.
The bill also establishes a National Rights Registry. The functions of the registry will be to digitally register right holders and copyright works.
The functions will also include authentication and authorization of consumers of copyright works as well as media monitoring of registered copyright works.
