Veteran Ghanaian musician, Rex Omar has jabbed Socrate Safo during a discussion.
Arguing over the plans of the New Patriotic Party’s government to create a Creative Arts Court, Rex Omar stated that Socrate Safo had no information on the subject so he won’t waste his time.
The debate on Neat FM’s ‘Entertainment GH’ was centred on whether the establishment of the court is necessary or not.
Socrate was firm on his stance that the availability of the court will help to protect the intellectual property of Creative Arts players in the country.
However, Rex Omar argued that a copyright tribunal will be helpful to industry players because copyright issues remain a major problem.
“I don’t waste time with people who don’t have information,” he stated.
“If you go into the Copyright Act, there is a provision for a copyright tribunal but the tribunal has not been created. You’re here saying that is why we’re setting up a Creative Arts court. There’s nowhere in the world like Creative Arts court. If it is now that Ghanaians are going to create it, I don’t know. I know we have something called the copyright court because copyright cuts across; everything we do incorporates copyright. Especially the creative economy, everything has to do with copyright,” Rex Omar maintained.
