Oct 25, 2013 – N5 Million Lawsuit: Nigerian Actress Sues AIT Over Atupa Emi Copyright Infringement

If you are regular viewer of African Independent Television (AIT), you must have come across a Yoruba movie titled Atupa Emi, written and produced by Temitope Oluwa.

The producer of the movie has filed a lawsuit against the popular Television station for airing her movie without securing proper authorization.

The actress filed the whopping N5 million lawsuit with the help of her attorney, MA Bashua & Co. in November 2012 but AIT refused to respond.

When asked why she instituted such a huge claim, hear what the actress said:

 “I don’t have much to say but I have instituted a legal case against AIT over an infringement on my rights as a citizen and as the copyright owner of Atupa Emi, which is illegally been aired on their medium.”

Here is a scanned copy of the lawsuit letter the actress sent across to media houses yesterday

Apparently, the lawsuit letter was served last year and after AIT refused to respond,Queen Temitope Oluwa through her lawyers took the case to court.
