"I am writing this post after many months of attempting to contact Emirates Airline through proper legal channels. They have disrespected my legal rights and have used my album and songs on their in-flight entertainment system for years without paying me a single cent or even taking permission from me. Now, months later, they do not respond to my attempts at communicating with them to fix the wrong that they have done. It is unbelievable that an international company which is so highly reputed would grossly ignore an Artist's Intellectual Property Rights. This is one of the legal notices that I had sent them earlier." #Emirates #farazanwar #geonews #arynews #ajjtv #dawnnews #cnn #bbc #aljazeeraenglish #khaleejtimes #boltv #thenews #jung #samaanews
