Media General, owners of TV3, have locked horns with popular movie producer, Socrate Safo, and a court suit against the company has become inevitable.
TV3, recently showed a Ghanaian movie called ‘Play Boy’ on its platform and this has not gone down well with Mr Safo who says he is owner of the movie and therefore deems it a copyright infringement for TV3 to have shown the movie without his permission whatsoever.
TV3, has however fired back at Mr. Safo saying their checks shows he is an imposter and not the owner of the movie, Play Boy, and therefore lacks the locus to make claim to copyright infringement.
The station has however not mentioned who, they believe, is owner of the movie but has rather dared Socrate Safo to prove he is owner of the movie in question.
Interestingly, some cast and crew of the Play Boy movie have expressed surprise at the claim by TV3 that the movie is not the intellectual property of Safo.
Checks showed that Mr. Safo, for years, has been collecting royalties for the movie from other organizations.
The credits in the movie even has his details as owner.
