“Duration of Copyrights In Nigeria”.
Owners of literary, musical, artistic, cinematograph works, sound recording and broadcast have copyright in Nigeria. No other person can reproduce, publish, perform, record, broadcast, erect, display or distribute to the public for commercial purposes such works without consent of the owner. 
The rights last for 70 years for literary, musical and artistic works apart from photos. And, rights for cinematograph films, photographs, sound recordings and broadcasts last for 50 years. 
My authorities are Sections 2, 5, 6 and 24 of Copyright Act.
