After almost 5 years of legal battle, the Koforidua High Court has slapped Joy Industries Limited with damages of GHc200,000 for using Rex Omar’s intellectual property without his permission.

The court also awarded costs of GHc30,000 to the veteran musician.

On June 15, 2015, Rex Omar filed a suit against Joy Industries Limited for using parts of his “Dada dida” song to promote and advertise their product, Joy Dadi Bitters’ without his consent.

In November, Rex Omar secured an interlocutory injunction restraining Joy Industries Limited from using his works.

The court further ordered that directors, officers, agents and servants of Joy Dadi Bitters should stop any electronic media from playing the commercial immediately, pending the final determination of the case.
