The following is an open letter to Ms Allison Demas, CEO of COTT, The Copyright Organisation of Trinidad and Tobago.
I would be grateful if you can kindly tell the public whether the country’s newly-crowned King of Calypso, Sugar Aloes (Michael Osuna) sought and obtained the prior permission from your Organisation(COTT) to use the intellectual property of Opposition Leader, Mr Basdeo Panday, vis Mr Panday’s so-called “Concession Speech” which he made on election night, November 5, 2007?
If not, can you please say whether PNM Calypsonians do not need a licence to copy anything in the country — but Music Pirates do?

WHOA! FOCKIN 6 BOY!
