Industry News: Star Lager Beer Launches a First-of-its-Kind Mobile Application Called Star Music


Star Music Mobile Application LagosLagos|Nigeria, Feb 27 2013 One of the things I love about the practice of law, and law in general is that there is never a dull moment. Indeed, lawyers are called upon to represent persons, whether in the creative industries or other industries, who continue to make business decisions that keep things very interesting.

The stakes continue to increase as more entrants/brands enter into Nigeria’s music space seeking to do two key things: 1) expand each brand’s reach ; and 2) increase their bottom line. There is so much to discuss about all of these exciting moves. Let’s keep watching this space for the meantime, shall we?

    I forsee serious copyright infrivgement cases between star music, iroking nd spinlet tho

    1. Hmmm Foza, I think you are right. However, I think it will just be between all digital distributors. I also think with Paul Play’s lawsuit, you could also see artists and record labels thrown in the mix for good measure.

      It gets interesting.

      Thanks for your comment.
