|Summary of the proposed Action :||Need for Action
The music industry in Ghana is faced with serveral challenges which we would like to address through this advocacy action. These include: lack of effective laws and regulations to protect the industry, low level of awareness on international property rights, lack of enforcement and supervision of laws and regulations.
The solution we are proposing is to have a broader policy and business environment framework that will give priority to the music industry and protect them including investors in the industry as well as their intellectual property rights and also to ensure the laws are enforced.
