The family of composer Iakob Bobokhidze accuses the TV commercial - beer “Mtieli” maker advertising company in copyright infringement. GCA was informed about the case by the heiress of the composer, Ms. Ia bobokhidze.

As Ms. Ia Bobokhidze declares the music for the advertisement of the beer “Mtieli” was used without permission and thus, was the composer’s copyright infringed. The advertisement makers declare that the music belongs to folklore and consequently no copyright was infringed.

Georgian Copyright Association set up the relevant commission to solve the dispute. The Commission will examine the case and will issue the professional statement/opinion.  In case of infringement confirmation, all the legal tools will be applied for the protection of author’s rights.
