Singer MG Dhanushka was ordered to pay Rs.300,000 to the sons of well-known singer, the late MS Fernando on agreeing to settle the matter amicably.

The order was given by Colombo Chief Magistrate Lal Ranasinghe Bandara in the case in which it was alleged that Dhanushka had violated the Intellectual Property Act by singing the late Mr. Fernando’s songs.

He was asked to make the payment by March 31.

Mr. Fernando’s son Sarath had complained to the CID that the suspect had breached his late father’s rights by singing his late father’s songs without permission to do so. (Farook Thajudeen)

    Intellectual Property Rights? How many of us had sung songs of others? Did MS, Waraka etc started their first songs in public with their own??? Thank God - The real artists like Jim Reeves, Mohd. Rafi, Latha Magishkar or their siblings are not there in Sri Lankan courts!

    Seems you don't understand Intellectual Property Rights. Of course people can argue its jealousy but there is a law behind it.
