COSCAP’s music mission
THE COPYRIGHT SOCIETY of Composers, Authors and Publishers (COSCAP) says there are still a number of issues plaguing the local music industry despite some progress over the years.
According to chief executive officer Erica Smith, among them are misconceptions and misinformation regarding the industry and the organization, as well as the need for improvement of technical standards and the generation of a higher quality of music.
She also said the opportunities for live performances were on the decline and this was something that “must be addressed”.
For that reason, Smith said the association had been taking steps to mitigate any further fallout. Two major areas of focus, she said, were more education on copyright and collective rights management.
