Collection of copyrights in music is not yet applicable to the reality of the country – coordinator of Rádio Comercial

Praia, Feb 14 (Inforpress) – The coordinator of Rádio Comercial praised the initiative of the Cabo Verdean Music Society (SCM) on the collection of copyright in the music, but considered that it could not be implemented due to “lack of financial conditions” of private radios.

According to Angélica Vaz, financial sustainability continues to be “the biggest constraint” of the various media in Cabo Verde, in this sense emphasized that Rádio Comercial, as a private agency, would not be able to meet this challenge.

This is because, she added, the situation “has been complicating every day” due to the lack of human and financial resources for the materialization of their projects and to be able to respond to the current challenges.

“I think that in order to apply this kind of law, one must first meet with radio stations to get a better understanding of the private radios reality in Cabo Verde”, said the same source, for whom it is necessary first to do a study before implementing measures because Rádio Comercial, for example, “can not afford music”.
