Disc sellers indict cassette sellers over copy law

In reaction to what is described as a swift enforcement of the Copyright Act 2011, by a Task force of musicians and stakeholders of the Cassette Sellers Association, considerable number of entertainment product sellers Thursday 1st were at the Ministry of Internal Affairs to strongly protest the possible unemployment of thousands the law will cause.

To address this problem, the membership of Sierra Leone Disc Sellers Association was at offices of the Minister of Trade and Minister of Internal Affairs to share their views and look for a possible solution.

It is to the understanding of Sierra Express Media that the forenamed Ministers favoured the code of beliefs of the copyright law because it complies with international standards and shares President Koroma’s doctrine of change.

The Act which principally endorsed the wishes of members in the entertainment industry and government consequently sounds like a thorn in the flesh of youths who have been making their living through the sale of legally imported international music albums in the country.

Lansana Conteh, the publication relation officer of Sierra Leone Discs Sellers Association said that as an organization they are committed in promoting local music, but however expressed disappointment over the recently set up Task Force that is now imposing sanctions against persons selling foreign products.

Lansana alleged that the Task Force members were mainly drawn from the Cassette Sellers Association whose intentions are to establish a monopoly in the industry.

As bad blood heightens between members of CSA and SLDSA, scores of importers of foreign films and music have their stocks being confiscated by personnel of the criminal.
