If you the artist gives a blogger a license to use your work i.e. you upload it online to be shared for free or send to bloggers, ‪#NECLIVE

Spinlet’s Nkiru just saying the same thing I just said. Nigerian bloggers got the industry talking about a digital revolution. If you give

have the authority to disseminate and distribute these songs to bloggers. STOP attacking music bloggers. ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 18h 
contd. The ISSUE is who are the artists or labels authorizing to send these tracks to bloggers? Many PR houses representing that they have

contd. music. In fact it makes no sense because by definition, bloggers are promoting your music FOR FREE at no cost to you. ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 18h 
Okay, let me clear on the attacks on Nigerian music bloggers. First, it needs TO STOP. The issue is not about bloggers pirating ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 18h 
Journalist woman says Nigerian music bloggers are uploading content without the express consent of artists and how do you stop it? ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 18h 
Audience member also says “our maintenance culture is a problem. It is not about getting an equipment but maintaing it.” ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 18h 
He says, “we talk, talk, talk but we all backdown in the end. When are we going to don’t just talk but act?” ‪#NECLIVE

‪@UDUAKLAW We are already working on digitising our content as are other Nigerian publishers, especially on mobile. Watch this space!

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
I want to hear more from Spinlet’s Nkiru. I think Spinlet should take the initiative of stand alone seminars to educate the public. ‪

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
”We need to begin looking at ways where we can create low cost cinemas says speakers.” ‪@africamet is, among others. Now support. ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
How long before ‪@CassavaRepublic and other book publishers begin feeling pressure when Nigerians begin reading books on tablets? ‪#NECLIVE

Technology helps you gather data that will help inform your decisions. How many Nollywood companies or record labels pay tax? ‪#NECLIVE

‪@UDUAKLAW still dnt understand dis. D artists actually offers dem another source of income but in 9ja it’s like dey doing d artist a favour.

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
Great point by a speaker who says how we approach distribution should also change. She asks, “who really buys CDs now in Nigeria?” ‪#NECLIVE

Spinlet’s Nkiru says going digital will not resolve piracy issues because piracy exists online too. It will always exists. ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
I like this Spinlet Nkiru rep. She says stop criticizing Alaba market. They have created employment for many. Collaborate instead. ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
Spinlet’s Nkiru says there are artists who tell them we need to get paid for our music but put up their music online for free. ‪#NECLIVE

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h 
The foundations of Nigeria’s entertainment industry was not built with IT in mind. So, we should not “parachute” IT into it. ‪#NECLIVE

‪@UDUAKLAW That is why I think this is such an exercise in futility. What I have learned in 4 months as a marketer no seminar has thought me

Uduak Oduok ‏‪@UDUAKLAW‬ 19h
