Nigeria Copyright Act

The Nigerian Copyright Act 1990 empowers the authors of copyright material, licensed collecting societies and the Nigerian Copyright Commission to investigate piracy and take enforcement measures. The High Court may issue warrants, issue injunctions and award damages. Defendants retain the right to counter-claim for procedural impropriety or on human-rights grounds.
