Omoni Oboli Cancels Premiere Of Okafor's Law Over Court Injunction For Stealing by AdoraAmadi: 8:53pm On Mar 24, 2017
Sometime in September 2016, Omoni Oboli was accused of copyright infringement for the Okafor's Law title she gave her movie, by a Canada based writer, Jude Idada. The nollywood actress Omoni Oboli was also accused of stealing his story and idea for her new movie "Okafor's Law."
Idada revealed this in an exclusive interview with TNS. He also stated that Oboli copied his idea for her directorial debut, "Being Mrs Elliott."

However, the actress/producer maintained her silence and went on to promote and allegedly set a release date for the movie for March 31st with the premiere today, even after a demand letter was sent, and the matter was taken to court for the copyright infringement and trademark violation.
Today, an injunction was gotten to prevent Okafor's Law premiere and also the release on the 31st of March, in the case in which Omoni Oboli, Dioni Visions & Filmone Distribution are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Defendants respectively. Omoni Oboli has however cancelled the premiere today, as she will be guilty of disregarding the order of the court and might be charged for contempt of court order.

This could set a good precedence and throw more awareness about intellectual property for creative works in Nigeria.

We should however hear Her own side of the Story.

this is the stupidest thing i ever saw in the history of fuckerydom! how can some idiot from somewhere say he owns the right to 'okafors law' as a title?? what in the actual fucckk? we have been using okafor's law as a joke since we were in secondary school! every young nigga that knows how to piss in a pot uses okafors law as a joke!!

it is like somebody saying he is coming to sue me if i make a movie titled 'chop and quench' because of title and intellectual property infringement. i blame omoni for allowing things to get to this stupid level, personally i would have counter-sued the idiot to high heavens with some badass lawyers/prosecutors so that anytime he hears my name he will run very far!

what nonsense? angry angry lazy and idiotic nigggers that can't do shitt for themselves, trying to reap where they did not sow even a rotten seed!

When I was small, I used to trek from school to house by 3-4. Before then, the sun has started setting from the east to west. My shadow will be at front and my image will be following uprightly. I discovered that, you cannot run faster than your own shadow. Let Omini Obol pay for intellectual copy.

That is not what happened. It is not about the title. The complainant is not that type of person.

Don't judge until you have read the full version of the story.

Would you be happy if your copyrighted work is stolen from you? Something you labored for? I bet then you will not be able to say fvck copyright.
