    Should the rest of the Caribbean islands pay Trinidad and Tobago

    money in royalties for the use of Steelpan, Calypso and Limbo as part of their tourism product?

    Should T&T pay other Caribbean islands for people whose descendants contributed to the culture the island has today?

    I never said anything about Jamaica only

    all those islands use all these aspects as part of their tourism product, so why not pay royalities?

    they dont deserve nothing, not one thing, Trinidad bless them with the opportunity to leave their backwards islands and come to the promise land.

    Clearly that's not true. If it was, people like you wouldnt be making threads about "White Trinidadians." GTHOH.

    Shut the hell up. You love to play a backassward fool. If Trinidad were the promised land, people like you would still be living there.

    it is, thats why i will be going back to my SWEET TNT, when I set up myself in order,

    but back to the original question, people and entities need to be credited for their work, so why all these kids on the block using our stuff for their benefit and not sending any royalties to our coffers?

    Its bad enough that they rip off our entire festival from start to finish over the summer!

    can we patent that too???? serious question

    Again, you wouldnt have to leave if it were the Promised Land. I'm all for island love & pride and such, but some stuff is just plain stupid. Nobody is using or ripping off anything considering that so much of what Trinidad is today stems from the contributions of their peoples. What a shame this is all you have to do with yourself on Christmas day.

    Christmas or no Christmas, rip off must stop!

    but I always think that we should be doing something to stop the leakage, its high time that we take some sort of action to stem the the use of our things with no benefits.

    How about they can use it, but they have to pay TNT 10 million US every year to use any of our stuff?

    Guess you'll be rivaling Opti for the most ignorant threads in the upcoming year. Carry on though. Some of us have to work tomorrow. You might want to get on that if you intend on returning to the "Promised Land."
