The background to the application can also be obtained from the Notice of Motion. The
Applicant is the sole assignee of the copyrights in the Musical works of the Afrigo Band, Joseph
Mayanja a.k.a. Jose Chameleon, Fred Sebatta, Geoffrey Lutaaya, Ssozi John a.k.a. Emperor
Orlando, David Semanda, Ssematimba, and Rachel Magoola among others. As a result of the

Respondent’s residence at Kafeero zone, Mulago, Kampala or his shop known as ―FM STUDIO‖
at the Old Taxi Park in Kampala.

relating to the Plaintiff’s machines or designs, the Plaintiffs applied ex-parte for an interim
injunction to restrain the Defendants from infringing their copyrights and disclosing confidential
