Director General of Nigerian Copyright Commission, Mr. Afam Ezekude has sent warning shots to pirates in Nigeria to prepare for a big battle.
Ezekude says it won’t be business as usual as the commission’s vision is to harness the potentials of the creativity industries of movies, music and books to enable them contribute to the growth of the country, as intellectual properties will be better protected thus creating more financial gains to encourage producers.
The primary mandate of the NCC is to enforce and prosecute copyright offenders, which in Nigeria is popularly referred to as piracy.
We only hope that their position and method will meet international practices and standards.
