Lawyers Urge FG To Enforce Intellectual Property Law  January 27, 2013 – 10:26 pm

Some lawyers in Lagos have told the Federal Government to enforce the country’s intellectual property law to protect creative outputs of individuals.

The lawyers, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, said that the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) should do more in protecting intellectual property rights of citizens.

Copyright law guides and protects the intellectual property works of individuals from being reproduced by others.

The lawyers called on the NCC to put in place a mechanism for proper enforcement of copyright laws.

A Lagos-based lawyer, Mrs Kemi Ajayi, said that a major aspect of intellectual property constantly abused was the copyright, which had to do with literary and artistic works.

She said that “if a check is not placed on the infringement of intellectual property, there will be a major drawback on creativity and invention’’.

According to Ajayi, Nigeria, like other developing nations is facing challenges associated with the implementation of copyright laws

She said that in developed countries, most intellectual works were internet-based and not largely available for plagiarism.
