This follows the release two weeks ago, by the producers of the biopic Stingomania, saying the airline had infringed on their copyright by allegedly listing and airing the movie as part of Virgin's in-flight entertainment for passengers on their planes.
An official in charge of press matters at Virgin Atlantic's corporate office at Ikeja, Lagos, Bennet Scot, says the Richard Branson-owned airline 'has no case to answer.'
'Virgin Nigeria has not infringed on any laws concerning this matter and any legal issue regarding this is to be resolved by the global production company and the producers', said the official.
When probed further if Virgin Atlantic had no case to answer in the matter, she replied 'I'm afraid so'. She however refused to comment further on the issue.
