Nida Nusrat, Nusrat Fateh’s Daughter, Will Take Legal Action Against Copyright

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s daughter Nida Nusrat has revealed that she will take action against people involved in infringement of the copyright of her father’s song.

On Friday Nida held a press conference in Lahore Press Club where she said that she is the only heir of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. She said I own the copyright of my father’s song which people are singing for commercial purposes.

Nida Nusrat also shared her plan to officially launch a collection of her father’s song. It seems that her legal actions against copyright infringement and intellectual property are for the same purpose.

She also talked about pages on social media and website which are using her father’s name. She also indicated that she plans to take action against Wikipedia after it failed to respond to her emails.

‘When my father died I was very young and moved along with mother to Canada. Those were difficult times and we faced a lot of hardships and people took advantage of that and started infringing upon copyrights of my father’s songs’ she added.

Nida Nusrat was also asked about whether she was married to Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, which she rejected explaining that her wife has the same name as her.  She also rejected any difference or problems with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan calling him a brother.
