A music company has lost its bid to win back
the rights to 13 Bob Marley songs after a court battle
Cayman Music had attempted to retrieve the rights
to songs including No Woman, No Cry.
It claimed they were not included when it sold
some of its rights in 1992 to Blue Mountain Music,
as Marley, who died in 1981, had penned them under
other people s names.
However the judge agreed the copyright had
"passed" under the 1992 agreement.
Lawyers for Blue Mountain, who administer roy-
alties for Marley s works, said they accepted the
singer had "falsely claimed" the tracks---written
between 1973 and 1976---had been composed by other
people in an attempt to "escape the automatic assign-
ment of their copyright to Cayman."
But they said the "plain intention" of the two
companies agreement was to "transfer all rights",
arguing on the "straightforward application of ordinary
principles of contract law" the claim had to be dis-
In his written ruling, deputy High Court judge
Richard Meade concluded Cayman had no rights to
the songs because "Marley did not publicly describe
himself as the author."
"He deliberately misattributed their authorship to
various friends and associates. It is clear that his
object in doing so was to gain control of the copyrights
in the works and gain remuneration from them."
He added Marley claimed he had not been paid
publishing royalties and "thought he had a genuine
grievance" against Cayman.
The other songs involved in the dispute included
as Crazy Baldhead, Johnny Was, Natty Dread, Positive
Vibration, Rat Race, Rebel Music (Road Block), Talking
Blues, Them Belly Full, Want More, War, Who The
Cap Fit and So Jah She. (BBC)
loses bid to win
HAVANA---While some Caribbean countries con-
tinue to struggle to keep their tourism numbers in
positive territory, business is booming in Cuba,
with the communist country seeing a rise of about
five per cent in the first four months of this year
compared to the same period in 2013.
According to the National Statistics and Information
Office (ONEI), the island welcomed 1.28 million
tourists between January and April this year, a figure
that exceeded by 60,804 the number of visitors
during that period last year.
In April alone, Cuba welcomed 287,103 foreign
visitors, up four per cent year-on-year.
Canadians continue to outnumber all other visitors
to Cuba with 623,337 arrivals, followed by Germans
with 55,238, according to ONEI, which noted that
British, French and Italian tourists were also at the
forefront of visitor numbers.
In 2013, Cuba attracted 2,852,572 tourists to its
shores, more than a million of them from Canada.
That number was just 150,000 short of the three
million goal that tourism authorities are aiming for
Significantly boosting the number of tourist arrivals
to Cuba last year were visitors from Argentina, Mexico,
Spain, Russia and Venezuela.
Tourism is Cuba s second leading source of foreign
revenue, with income of some $1.8 billion in 2013,
most of it for accommodation and food, according
to official figures.---Caribbean360
