Government Obtains ECCO Copyright Licences For Carnival Events


(St. Lucia Times) – The Government of Saint Lucia (GOSL), through the Carnival Planning & Management Committee (CPMC), continues to show support for Saint Lucian creatives by obtaining a copyright licence from the Eastern Caribbean Collective Organisation for Music Rights (ECCO) Inc. in preparation for hosting the national carnival events.

The GOSL understands the rights associated with music -the main driver of entertainment activity in this and every carnival season.
