The Fiji Performing Rights Association says it will take legal action if Public Transport drivers fail to get a copyright music licenses.
FPRA Chairman Eremasi Tamanisau says they will ensure that all public transport playing music pay the ten cent per day levy.
‘’should that not work, the only options left for us is the legal pathway and that is the last options because its not a path that we like to take because there are important stake holders in the industry but if we are forced to and there is no other option will have to go that way’’.
Tamanisau says drivers and public transport owners should know that there are copyright laws which mean that compositions belong to artists who deserve payment.
