I write on behalf of ECPA to thank the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) for its efforts during the past eighteen months in monitoring pirated books arriving in Nigerian ports, seizing those pirated goods, and pursuing reforms in Nigerian copyright law that will better protect our members and others in creative industries. Our hope is that your efforts combined with those of CBAN and ECPA will make Nigeria a market in which our members feel confident making their titles more widely available. To that end, we continue to support your seizure of pirated books and intent to publicly destroy those pirated copies with appropriate documentation of the titles destroyed. Again, we thank you for your cooperation in protecting the rights of our members and other stakeholders in the publishing industry".

Here’s an idea we wouldn’t mind seeing spread: Nigeria is starting a program to teach secondary school students the importance of respecting copyright. The school initiative is part of Nigeria’s larger effort to crack down on piracy with tougher penalties and stepped up enforcement. While Nigeria clearly recognizes a need to improve copyright protection, it is apparently already doing a better job than many nations. It did not make the U.S. government’s latest list of worst offenders of intellectual property rights (its neighbour to the north, Algeria, did).
