FAQs About Copyright Registration In Nigeria

Copyright is a legal protection given to original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. It grants the creator exclusive rights to use and distribute their work.

In Nigeria, the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) is responsible for regulating copyright matters and protecting the rights of creators.

Eligible works for copyright include literary works like books and poems, musical works, dramatic works, choreographic works, artistic works like paintings and sculptures, and certain types of computer software.

Copyright can be conferred on the original creators of eligible works. If the work is created as part of employment, the employer may hold the copyright, unless there is an agreement stating otherwise.

A literary, artistic, or musical work has the author’s copyright for as long as they are alive and for 70 years after their passing. For 50 years following the date the work was first published, the owner of films, sound recordings, performances, and other works has Copyright. After the period of protection expires, the work is no longer protected and can be used by anyone.

You must fill out an online form or deliver an application for registration to any Commission office nationwide. Additionally, you must provide the Commission with two (2) copies of the work as well as proof of payment of the prescribed fee. 

No, names are not covered by the copyright law but they might be covered under trademark law.

It means the unauthorized use of a copyrighted work such as importing, exhibiting, distributing, public performance of a copyrighted work without the permission of the copyright owner.

In the Federal High Court with jurisdiction over the infringement, a claim for copyright infringement may be made by the owner, assignee, or exclusive licensee of the copyright. In a lawsuit alleging copyright infringement, the plaintiff is entitled to any and all redress, such as monetary compensation, injunctions, accounts, and other relief.
