The general public is hereby informed of the formal launch of the Nigerian e-Copyright Registration System (NeCRS) . . .
The Nigerian Electronic Copyright Registration System (NeCRS) seeks to improve on the existing Copyright Notification scheme to enable creators of copyright works or persons who have acquired rights in these works to register such interests with the Commission.
Additional advantages include:
- Documentation of Copyright works of all qualified persons from any part of the world;
- Protection for copyright works of Nigerian authors in all countries who are signatory to international copyright conventions to which Nigeria is signatory;
- Searches of the NeCRS database for information relating to registered copyright works or author;
- Flexible payment platform for services; and
- Efficient and timely service delivery.
With effect from 1st of August, 2014, applications for registration of copyright works maybe submitted through the NeCRS portal. The portal can be accessed via the Commission’s (www.copyright.gov.ng) website or a dedicated URL that will be provided later.
Guidelines on the procedure of application and prescribed fees are on the NeCRS website and may also be obtained from the Regulatory department of the Commission at the Head office, Abuja (tel: +234 818 341 3611), or any offices of the Commission nation-wide.
