The Audio-Visual Rights Society of Nigeria (AVRS) has signed a historic Audio visual right agreement with the Hotel owners and managers’ association of Lagos (HOMAL) at the prestigious EKO Hotel and Suites Lagos.
The Agreement, which took 3 (three) years of active deliberation and negotiation finally saw all parties agreeing on the need to compensate rights owners of audio-visual works for the commercial use of their works in Hotels and similar establishment.

Chairman’s speech at the 2nd AVRS AGM Held on the 21st of June 2017 at NANS Hall, National Theatre Iganmu, Lagos.

All respectable members of the Audio-Visual Rights Society of Nigeria (AVRS) present, the Director General of the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, I feel honoured to welcome you all to the second Annual General Meeting of our Society.

As you will recall, our inaugural AGM was held last year on March 29 at the Excellence Hotel and Conference Centre, Ogba, where the current board was elected and I was entrusted with the chairmanship of the board.

Before I proceed to highlightour major achievements sincethat historic event, I will like us to observe a one minute silence for some of our members as well as other practitioners in the Audio-visual sector that died within the past year. Notable among them is one of our pioneer subscribers, Mr Chike Bryan Nnamani, wife of one of our Board member and a member in her own right Mrs Henrietta Kosoko, Chief OlumideBakare, Prince James Uche and Moji Olaiya to mention but a few…………. MAY THEIR SOULS REST IN PERFECT PEACE.
