Kenya: Piracy Hot Topic At Africa Music Conference

MUSIC piracy, broadcasting rights, licensing and legal framework development, are some of the hot topics to be discussed in this year's annual Broadcast Film and Music Africa conference to be held next month.

The conference offers a wide range of opportunities for stakeholders in film, music and media, as well as content developers, to network, dialogue and generate the much needed input to advance the broadcast film and music industry not only in Kenya but in the African continent as a whole.

Now in its sixth year, BFMA is a pan-African forum organised by AITEC Africa seeking to bring together current stars, aspiring artistes and scriptwriters as well as content developers who meet, deliberate and explore ideas and strategies to leverage and enhance their creative talents on the world stage through the rapidly changing digital media industry. The two-day conference will be held at the KICC on May 27 and 28.

"The fifth conference in the series will once again provide a stock-taking opportunity for stakeholders in all three industries, and empower them with the knowledge and business contacts they need to build Africa's electronic media future," read a statement.
