COCOA TEA, ANTHONY CRUZ, TONY REBEL
AND QUEEN IFRICA MADE HISTORY
Artistes Cocoa Tea, Anthony Cruz, Tony Rebel and Queen Ifrica made history on Tuesday April 15, 2008 as they made legal deposits of their respective albums with the National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) located on East Street, Kingston.
The artistes are complying with the Legal Deposit Act, which was passed in 2002 which named the National Library as the Principal Legal Depository into which copies of all kinds produced in Jamaica for public distribution, lease or sale must be deposited.
Under the Legal Deposit Act, one copy of all audio-visual materials and two copies of all printed publication must be deposited within a month of publication. Failure to comply with the Act is an offence to which a publisher/producer may be fined up to J$50,000. The Legal Deposit Act also stipulates that each depositor is entitled to receive a sum equivalent to the production cost of each item deposited.
