The Nigerian Copyright Commission And Administration Of Copyright In Nigeria (an Appraisal)   Abstract

Man over the years has metamorphosed both physically and in ideas. This progressive undeniable dynamism in human nature has made it quit vital that man must be creative and not just that, but also innovative to satisfy his ever increasing unsuitable wants, thereby prompting some legal installation to this effect. This piece of work is propelled toward examining the creative work of man vis-Ã -vis the way he can be protected against any undue and unwarranted encroachment on his creative ability and the possible bodies vested with authority to look into the issue and the likely way it could be remedied if peradventure his interest was breach. Chapter one of this work is gives an insight into the significance of the study and concept of copyright, tracing its antecedence and developmental phases it has passed through till date, Chapter two would be dwelling predominantly on the work to be protected, those eligible to be protected and how they can arrived at it. Also to be considered is the aspect of authorship and ownership of copyright, terms of copyright the exception to copyright and how it can be effectively transferred in the Nigeria context. 
Chapter three, will dwell essentially on the administration of copyright in Nigeria centering more on the duties of the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) and other regulatory bodies like Phonographic Performance Limited, Performing Musician and Artist of Nigeria, Performing and Broadcasting Rights of Author/Composer and publisher MRS and many others including inspectors who would be considered as forces behind the curtain seen to a hitch free inventory society like ours. It is difficult to have an absolute crime free society, thus chapter four will be considering the infringement that copyright works are subjected to and the likely cure to the injury she might sustain in that process in form of remedies. Lastly, chapter five would be offering recommendation which might turn out to be invariable, as the conclusion ushers in, collecting in a statement or to the whole piece as the curtain falls. Thus, this project shall be divided into five chapters.
