Copyright Boss Resigns

first_imgThe Officer-In -Charge of the Liberian Copyright Office, Mr. Ernest Bruce has revealed to LIBLIFE in an interview that he has resigned.“There has been a lot of grumble to the extent that my character was assassinated, when members of the Collective Management Society charged that I took news to the international community that we have a CMO when we don’t,” said Mr. Bruce. “It seems to me that there is a lot of misunderstanding either about how this thing should be done or going on, so I have decided to step aside for other personal reasons.”He added, “I felt bad to resign since it has been my childhood dream to help build the entertainment industry in Liberia to benefit artists.” He however said that he is resolute in his decision to leave the copyright office, knowing that there are certain things in life that one cannot change and that are some that can be changed. “I can’t be part of a fight when it is clear that I did not create the CMO and never begged for the position. I was asked to do it,” he said. According to him, those that are now “fighting” him were the same people that applauded his leadership and said that he has the belief it is the time for him to give those critics a chance to do a better job. “When I accepted the position to head the copyright office I did it because of my passion for it. Now that I’m leaving, I promise to still be involved into it as a private citizen, always willing to give my expertise,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

This is where we start to normalize behaviours onscreen, and substitute in products and behaviours that are more environmentally conscious.” HOLLYWOOD IS WORKING HARDER TO PROMOTE ELECTRIC CARS AND CLEAN ENERGYTesla’s cars have become popular with many of Hollywood’s biggest stars. But more recently, many of those who are behind-the-scenes on today’s television and movie sets are embracing the electric car and clean energy. Ian Bailey reports in The Globe and Mail that movies and television shows “with green content can [help] drive sustainability.” And that’s an important message that can be promoted from Hollywood to the masses.Check Out These Stories: Above: Tesla Model S in the Deadpool 2 movie (Image: IMCDB)Bailey says, “It’s a point the TV and film industries are trying to make with viewers, in the same way they turned against smoking and other uses of tobacco in previous decades.” Bailey interviewed Clara George, a producer on The Arrangement, a television series which included “a subtle nudge to viewers about the importance of sustainability.” For instance, “Another character on the show drove a Tesla.”.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }Above: USA Network’s show, Suits, features a scene starring the original Tesla Roadster (Youtube: SuitsonUSA)“People are very worried they are going to have to change their lives dramatically to take any sustainable steps,” George says. “What we can show them is, ‘No, you don’t. They can just be in anything.’” She adds, “What drives me crazy is that people still think it’s a discussion. We need action now… I don’t think climate change is debatable.” read more
