Miles has been a part of the music industry for the last 40 years. But suddenly we are going to jail because of outsiders

Bangladesh Musical Bands Association (BAMBA), Music Industries Owners Association of Bangladesh (MIB) and Bangladesh Film Producers and Distributors Association (BFPA) condemned the harassment of local musicians, music companies, film producers and service providers at the hands of a lawyer named Olora Afrin and her company.

They expressed their disapproval in a joint press conference held on August 6 at 12pm.

Hamin Ahmed, president of BAMBA, claimed that a band musician had to go to jail because of a case filed by the accused lawyer and her company ‘Licensing and Collecting Society for Cinematograph Films.’ Zooel Morshed, Nafis and Sanji of Qinetic Network have allegedly been terrorized by Afrin as well.

According to the music and film associations, the lawyer has allegedly sent several lawsuits and notices to intimidate artists in the name of copyright protection.

In the press conference, association members claimed that Afrin obtained permission of a Collective Management of Copyright (CMO) through her legal firm, which includes not a single person associated with the film industry despite its name.

"Miles has been a part of the music industry for the last 40 years. But suddenly we are going to jail because of outsiders. What should we do now? Are we supposed to go to jail, or quit music?" Hamin Ahmed said in the conference.

Olora Afrin's recorded phone call was played at the press conference, in which she repeatedly threatened to sue musicians.
