GCA will protect the Georgian Composer’s Copyright

Composer Gogi Chlaidze applied to GCA for protection of his copyright.

The issue is related to the album released under SONY trademark consisting from musical works of Ioseb Kechakmadze, Djemal Beglarishvili, Giorgi Chlaidze and Ekvtime Kochlamazishvili. As Giorgi Chlaidze declares, the audio CD was recorded without the permission of Georgian composers. The album was issued is high circulation and realized in different countries, though no royalties were paid to the composers. Thus their copyright was infringed.

The issue will be examined by the GCA, as well as the number of copies sold, countries of realization and other facts relevant to the case. In this regard the GCA has launched the facts finding campaign. In case the copyright infringement is approved all legal actions will be applied.
