Lawyers to Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) have filed a new process at the Court of Appeal, Lagos Division challenging the content of the letters from the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), reportedly suspending the copyright licensing activities of the society.

 

 

 

A release from the society states that Alliance Law Firm headed by Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Uche Val Obi filed the process within 24 hours of the receipt of the letters from NCC, with COSON urging the Court of Appeal to make suspensory or dispositive mandatory orders against the NCC’s directives, pending the determination of the pending appeal.

 

 

 

 In a letter dated May 3, 2018 to the NCC Director-General, Mr. Afam Ezekude, the COSON lawyers stated that the development at the Court of Appeal lawfully apprehends the NCC directives suspending the license of COSCON to operate as a royalty collecting organization.
