MTN has today settled 92% of the CAPASSO invoice relating to music sales in 2014. The remaining 8% relates to the alleged disputed songs.

CAPASSO welcomes this development, and is also encouraged by the delivery of 2015 usage reports which were also received from MTN. However, these still don’t indicate all sales made on the MTN platform,.

“We are encouraged and hope this signifies the beginning of better engagement with MTN. We however still require MTN to take responsibility for all of outstanding copyright liability and to comply with the Copyright Act of South Africa. This means they must enter into a licence agreement with CAPASSO before they continue to sell CAPASSO-member music” stated Nothando Migogo.

She added that royalties received today would be distributed to the rightsholders next month.
