The Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) are set to effect changes in the Nigerian copyright system.

The COSON boss are currently talking on the need to firm up certain areas of the copyright laws and reform the reward mechanisms of the creative industry.

This is to effectively protect and promote creative enterprise in the nation and ensure that the Nigerian economy benefits from the creative ingenuity of Nigerian citizens and those interested in investing in the creative industries.

This fact was revealed during a recent visit of a delegation of members of COSON consisting of Sir Shina Peters, Ras Kimono, Kenny Saint Best and Azeezat Allen to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami SAN.

The minister during the visit revealed that as part of the reform, the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), will be energised without delay so that it will move from its present analogue approach to the enforcement of the copyright law to a new and muscular digital approach.

Reacting, Chief Okoroji who led the delegation said COSON was seeking to engage critical policy makers in the Buhari administration on how to harness the potential contributions which Nigerian creativity can make to the development of the Nigerian nation.
