Copyright infringement: Court hears motion against Transcorp Hilton May 25

Justice Taiwo Obayomi Taiwo of a Federal High Court in Abuja will on Wednesday May 25, hear a motion for interlocutory injuction, seeking to restrain Transcorp Hilton from using its business arena for public performance or communication to the public of audiovisual works or Cinematograph films.
The application is coming on the heels of a suit filed by Audiovisual Rights Society Limited/Gte (AVRS) seeking declaratory reliefs and injuctions against the defendant.
Entertainment lawyer, Mr Justin Ige from Creative Legal acting as counsel to AVRS, is asking the Federal High Court Abuja, to restrain the hotel from “permitting any place or facility of public entertainment or business, belonging to or controlled by the Defendant (Transcorp Hilton), to be used for the public performance or communication to the public of Audiovisual works or Cinematograph films comprised of copyrights or performer’s rights belonging to the Plaintiff, the Plaintiff’s members, assignees and/or affiliates without the license of the Plaintiff pending the final determination of this suit”
