The following is a press release from COTT:

The Copyright Music Organisation of Trinidad and Tobago (COTT)  wishes to advise that its personnel have not been instructed to pull music trucks off the road.  
 
COTT laments however that on Carnival Monday a number of music trucks had no license to play music or were not licensed to play musical works assigned to COTT.  
 
COTT advises that its licensing representatives are out in full force today to ensure compliance with COTT’s continuing protection of musical works assigned to it.
