15 September 2015, 10:01Okoro Chinedu

Lagos -  Preparations for the Nigerian Digital Music Summit are at an advanced stage.

The Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) is spearheading the preparations.

It is collaborating with Growth and Employment Projects (GEM) Nigeria, supported by the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment.

The World Bank and the United Kingdom’s Department of International Development (DFID) are funding the event set for Victoria Island, on September 28 and 29.

The summit will held under the theme, “Establishing the Basic Rules of Engagement in the Digital Environment.”

The two-day event provides an opportunity for key players in the production and distribution of music in the digital era in Nigeria to engage with copyright experts.

This would determine the basic rules of engagement in the digital environment in order to ensure that every person or organization in the value chain can get a fair deal.

Copyright experts from around the world are set to attend.

COSON Chairman, Tony Okorojia, said the summit is critical as the production and distribution of music has gone almost completely digital.

"The summit is not a talk shop. It is an opportunity to agree on how to move forward so that everybody’s interest is protected and the Nigerian music industry can grow and meet its true potential," he said.
