DAILY LAW TIPS

“Every Work That Is Eligible For Copyright In Nigeria Is Conferred Copyright Even Without A Registration”.
Every work of art that is eligible for copyright in Nigeria whose author is a Nigerian or foreigner domiciled in Nigeria or is a company registered in Nigeria is naturally conferred copyright. Same applies to every work first published or recorded in Nigeria or made by government of Nigeria or a state in Nigeria. Such work does not need to be registered with the National Copyright Commission for it to have a copyright and be protected.
My authority is section 2, 3 and 4 of Copyright Act.
