Payment of Royalties for Musical Works in Kenya
MetadataShow full item record
Since time immemorial, music has been viewed in the African community and as a pass time activity and not as a career. Due to this conservative belief, those who aim and pursue music as a career in this day and age have a difficult time doing so. As the years progress however, musicians are finding their place in the professional world. In Kenya, their rights are protected by legislative pieces such as the Copyright Act as well as Collective Management Organizations, which are registered under the Kenya Copyright Board.
