Copyright Commission to strengthen anti-piracy fight


The Nigerian Copyrights Commission (NCC) says it would strengthen the fight against piracy in the country.

Chairman of the Board which was inaugurated on May 28, Mr Tonye Jaja made this known at its maiden meeting held in Abuja.

Jaja said that the Board’s focus was to change the narrative of copyrights in Nigeria and improve welfare of the Commission’s staff.

The focus is having a strategy that will re-position the commission, including staff welfare.

“Once you sufficiently motivate the staff through welfare, their work will improve. The board has approved certain innovations that will improve the commission.”

The newly-elected Board was the first in the history of the Commission that has all the representatives across sectors as stipulated in the Act.
