LAGOS STATE GOVT NEEDS YOUR IDEA ON SOLUTIONS TO FIGHT PIRACY (WHERE TO SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL)

Piracy is the greatest challenge to intellectual property in the City of Lagos. It is an infringement on individual and / or organisational copyright for profit making by illicit traders.
Intellectual Property Challenges:
Artists' works (CD/DVDs) are being produced and copied illegally by unauthorised marketers and the illegal duplication leads to poor outcomes of audio-visual production and lack of re-investment in productions.
Objective of the City of Lagos:
Solutions are sought that protect intellectual property that prevents cropping (illegal duplication) and also makes it impossible and unattractive to infringe on the right of intellectual property owner(s).
Furthermore, solutions are sought that can provide benefits for the owner of the property through a payment gateway.
Solutions may, for example, provide an ability to key code downloaded material such that usage or installation is limited to agreed number of time.
Participating Stakeholders:
Nollywood artists, Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) and the State implementation of Geographic Information System (GIS).
