A section of Ghanaian musicians have commended the Ghana Music Right Organization (GHAMRO) for instituting a legal action against Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) and telecommunication companies in the country for their refusal to pay royalties to GHAMRO. They contended that the use of music by corporate organisations, companies and individuals without paying mechanical royalties to the composers is a great source of worry to the stakeholders in the industry. The musicians argued that in the developed world where strict copyright laws exist, musicians and composers do not rely on pay from live musical performances, but rather on royalties paid by music users.
