How Can One Offer Nigerian Music Downloads Legally?

Can One Sell Nigerian Music Online Without Copyright Problems?

I am planning a website where people especially nigerians abroad can easily download Nigerian songs online. However i do not knowhow to do this without having having litigations springing up.

Is it even possible? What do you think may be the financial layout I may need to do this? Please your contributions will appreciated.

am not so sure if you read my other post but that would give you an idea of how it would be that was my idea b/4 but cause of the cost with copyright, look the market is big with over 250 million 9ja even with 40 companies doing the same thing if you got go adverts you would make your money. so good luck to you

Hurrah, I've always wanted this to happen as in talk about competitivenessspelling?. If guys keep brain storming and producing business Ideas, then that is the only way nigerians can better themselves, I mean this is the core foundation of capitalism.Brushparke keep it up and all the best.

my2cents dont be surprised that b4 you set out I might have gained monopoly of your intended business, any wayz hustle and come to Naija.!

well it's a good idea one that me myself am planning myself, but you don't need charle boy, number one he is no longer the pman head and pman is not the oraganization to meet you would have to meet with the copyright commission or if you can meet with the managment of the artist and work out a plan, that way is cheaper, or the recording company of the artist, cause with copyright you pay more

You will need a miracle for that to work. The hawkers on the street will have to be forced out of a job. I think bootleg is in Nigeria to stay.

it's a good idea. the first thing i to contact an entertainment lawyer in nigeria to see how it'd work out. i imagine you can get the songs from the owner,s either the music companies or the producers themselves for a price. say 10% o fwhatever your download price is

Thanks My2cents, i had thought it would involve striking a deal with the real intectual property owner, like the artise or the producers!

The idea is to get the songs easily accessible to Nigerians abroad and make some cash in the process.

Please more contributions .

thanks

I would start by contacting PMAN or whatever association in Nigeria that is responsible for enforcing copyright laws. Like Kazaa et all, you may have to enter a deal with them where you pay them some amount per download. I am sure they will provide you with financial details.

As for the idea, pretty brilliant. I would like to download certain naija music, rather than just listen to them on say, radiopalmwine.com
