It then cuts to the company's name in Amharic and the logo. Beneath is a dark aqua background with light turquoise lights and white musical notes flying towards the screen. It then cuts to a peaceful yellow background with a copyright logo on it. On it shows the disclaimer: "ይሀንን ፊልም የስባስቤቱ ፈቃድ ማሳተምም ሆነ አባዝቶ መስጥ በህግ ያስቀማል። (Publishing or reselling this film without the owner's permission is prohibited by law.) in red".
