GUIDELINES FOR COPYRIGHT AGREEMENTS

T
he growth of the Copyright Industry in the last 15-20 years, exemplified by what has been described as the third largest movie industry in the world, “Nollywood” as well as the astronomical growth of the music industry has changed the perspective of the Nigerian entertainment industry as a whole and given it both local and international recognition.

This growth has also given rise to the use of copyright protected materials and continues to encourage the creative genius‟ in Nigerians. It is therefore no surprise that the airwaves in Nigeria and indeed several other African countries are dominated with Nigerian developed Copyright protected works. The recent complaints by several right owners of the unauthorized use of their copyright protected works in Europe, America, Asia and other parts of the world is an indication of the spread of Nigerian works in which copyright subsists.
