The Judge deemed it illegal for the company to continuously use the image of the musician when there was no contract.

The court also ordered Melcom to pay Tic Tac, a legal cost of GHC 2,000.

Tic Tac‘s lawyer Gary Nimako Marfo told the media after the court proceedings that his victory drums home the fact that businesses cannot use the intellectual property of right owners without their consent.
