Radio is gone too soon. Sad but we can’t change that. Let us draw some lessons. Why doesn’t this country protect and enforce Copyright? We have a very good law. The Copyright and Neighboring Rights Act but it is not enforced.

In serious jurisdictions, a musician is paid every time his song is played on a radio station, TV, in a club or in public. Those involved in the aforementioned businesses are required to have software that keeps a record of songs played. This coupled with sales of original records guarantees a lifetime of earning! To this day, Elvis Prestley’s estate earns millions of dollars.

Sadly, those involved in the business of pirating music will make millions by selling Radio’s pirated records and cash in on his death! This money would be going to his estate to take care of his children . If just 50,000 copies alone were sold at 5,000/=, that would be 250 million. Food for thought.

Musicians wake up and demand that government enforces the law. Demand what is due to you. It makes so sense to spend months in a studio just to produce music for music pirates to live off!
