Judgement Day:

Judgement was handed down in the South Gauteng High Court Johannesburg on Friday 6th November 2009 when Judge Boruchowitz ruled in favour of music composers Colin Shapiro and Hotep Galeta in their Liquidation application against SARRAL (the South African Recording Rights Association Limited)

Shapiro had asked the court to wind up the royalty society on the basis that SARRAL was misappropriating composers' royalty money, was acting in conflict with its Rules and Articles and that SARRAL was insolvent.

Shapiro was joined by Galeta, a fellow SARRAL member, as co-applicant in early 2006
