Lawyer for OldFilm Productions, Kwame Kodua Atuahene has written to the management of Eclipse Broadcasting Network (EBN) over alleged copyright infringement following the unauthorised airing of the “Aloe Vera” movie.
In the said letter seen by Graphic Showbiz, it noted that “Aloe Vera” owned by his client, Peter Sedufia has exclusive economic rights to its copyright.
The letter mentioned that since the release of the movie in 2020, the client has had minimal opportunities to monetise the work through sales, premiering, or authorised broadcast despite the high cost of production.
“That on Saturday, July 12, 2023, before 2:00pm, you caused the broadcast of Aloe Vera, a work owned by Oldfilm Productions, without the express permission of my client as required by the Copyright Act 2005(Act 690).
“You are advised to act on the legitimate and fair demand for compensation within ten days of this letter, failing which, I shall act as instructed and initiate legal proceedings for compensation without further recourse to you,” the letter said.
