MTN through its Foundation has launched a series of workshops to give students of the MUSON Music Scholars Programme a better understanding of the business side of their craft.

The first in the quarterly series was themed “Copyright & Intellectual Property Protection,” held at the Agip Recital Hall of the MUSON Centre, Lagos. Using a variety of local and foreign case studies, legal experts educated scholars on the fundamentals of intellectual property rights, discussing its benefits and possible consequences of its negligence. The scholars also received information which will enhance their entrepreneurial skills.

The workshops will help prepare the scholars for the real world.”
