Farhad Humayun has been granted a STAY against Coca-Cola Pakistan by the Intellectual Property Rights Tribunal Lahore, for infringing the copyright of his composition of the song “NERAY Aah” in a recent TV commercial.
Respondents are RESTRAINED from using, exhibiting, displaying the song “NERAY Aah” on any / all print, digital or social media platforms in any manner whatsoever .
“ Intellectual property is a tangible commodity. I’m happy that the court has accepted the evidence presented by my counsel and ordered Coke, Soho and all involved parties to stop use of the tvc. Its a win for all artists whose rights are violated by corporations that claim to help music and art but are actually disrespecting people who make their campaigns great. We work very hard. Stealing our work cannot be justified no matter how big or powerful a corporation may be! “ Says Farhad Humayun
