INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (IP & ICT)

G.O. SODIPO AND CO.

NEWSLETTER

JUNE, 2014.

In this quarter’s newsletter we take a look at Intellectual Property and Communication Technology law, highlighting the current developments in the ICT sector as relates to intellectual property issues and its regulation worldwide, with special emphasis on Nigeria. ICT drives socio-economic growth and therefore needs to be properly regulated. We will showcase some legal cases, events and opinions currently trending in the ICT world.
In writing this issue of our newsletter we have also highlighted the opinion of various legal luminaries as to the intellectual property issues raised by the wide use of communication technology in Nigeria.
Unfortunately Nigeria is yet to pass into law its various bills relating to Information Technology, it is our hope that they be made laws soon, as this will facilitate the growth of the ICT sector and also address the intellectual property issues. The proposed laws are listed below:
 The Computer Security and Critical Information Infrastructure protection Bill 2005
 Cyber Security and Data protection Agency Bill 2008
 Electronic Fraud Prohibition Bill 2008
 The Nigerian Computer Security and Protection Agency Bill 2009  The Computer Misuse Bill 2009  The Electronic Transaction Bill 2011 The issue of enforcement of intellectual property rights in the digital environment is quite challenging, especially for right holders to detect and stop the dissemination of unauthorized digital copies, which is now done with unimaginable speed
