Cosoma AGM on Thursday

MAKWINJA—We have the AGM

Copyright Society of Malawi (Cosoma) will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday and Friday at Crossroads Hotel in Blantyre.

The AGM follows Pre- AGM regional meetings the copyright body held last month in Lilongwe, Mzuzu and Blantyre.

During the Pre-AGM meetings, Cosoma discussed with its rights holders several issues including collection and distribution of royalties, blank media levy and monitoring system.


Cosoma Executive Director Dora Makwinja, said Monday preparations were at an advanced stage for the AGM.

“All is set for the AGM. We have it on October 22 and then October 23,” Makwinja said.

On Thursday, Cosoma will engage musicians and then on Friday other rights holders from other associations such as Book Publishers Association of Malawi (Bpam), Visual Arts Association of Malawi, Malawi Writers Union (Mawu) and Photographers Association of Malawi (Photama).


During the AGM Cosoma, members among others, will be briefed on some of the works that the copyright body has undertaken during the financial year.

Cosoma recently also engaged Musicians Union of Malawi (Mum) on a number of issues including the legality of the taskforce.

Cosoma has a new board which was elected recently and it is headed by Bpam President Maureen Masamba. The other members are veteran comedian Eric Mabedi, musician Kendall Kamwendo of the Symon ndi Kendall fame, Film Association of Malawi (Fama) President Ezaius Mkandawire, former Musicians Union of Malawi (Mum) President Reverend Chimwemwe Mhango and gospel musician Enesia Chitheka Louis.
