Femi Adebayo sues online TV over alleged copyright infringement

NollyNollywood actor Femi Adebayo

Actor Femi Adebayo has dragged Murfy Ben International, a YouTube channel to Federal High Court Ibadan over the alleged copyright of his movies.

The Yoruba actor recently demanded immediate action be taken against the organisation over his two movies, Survival of Jelili and Kodi Ologbon Aye.

Femi had, at the commencement of trial in November 2021, testified that many Nigerians were calling him that the firm was transmitting his two films on its YouTube channel, Aforefo TV, without authorisation.

The petitioner, through his counsel, Mr Y.B. Adebowale, had alleged that Aforefo TV specialised in defrauding members of the public by using the title of newly-released movies to advertise old ones.

The actor further said that Murfy Ben International Limited used Survival of Jelili, the title of the film he produced in 2019, to promote Kodi Ologbon-Aye which he released in 2015.

The movie star is set to premiere his new movie King of Thieves.
