PRINTERS in Rivers State have been enlightened on the provisions of the Copyright Act, 2022 as it concerns the printing of copyright works.
This followed a copyright sensitisation exercise organised by the NCC Port Harcourt Office on the 27th of June 2023. According to a report from the Office, the exercise was carried out to encourage printers in the State to adhere to the provisions of the Copyright Act with particular emphasis on printing activities.
The Copyright Sensitisation exercise took the team of Copyright Officers led by Assistant Director Port Harcourt Office, Mr. Joseph Ojika to different outlets within Port Harcourt metropolis.
Printers who were not keeping registers of copyright works, as required under the Act, were warned to comply by maintaining the register and or face the wrath of the law. They were also admonished to desist from engaging in acts that are in breach of copyright law.
The following printing presses and outlets were visited by the Officers: Royal Digital Printing Press; Diglad Printing Press; Paul Olloo Printing Press; UBS Digital Bookshops; POC Bookshops and De Kinzeeon Nigeria Bookshops.
