After carrying out a successful anti-piracy raid at Awodi-Ora Estate in Ifelodun-Ajeromi Local Government Area of Lagos State which led to the confiscation of thousands of cartons of pirated works worth N600 Million, the Nigerian Copyright Commission has again carried out another successful anti-piracy raid at Tedi Village in Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Areaof Lagos State.

The anti-piracy raid culminated in the seizure of about two thousand cartons of pirated books belonging to various publishers. The Commission also arrested a Chinese nationale in connection with the pirated books. The seized books are worth over N200 Million.

Piracy is bad. All concerned should speak out to condemn it and appropriate punishment should be meted out to those involved. Denying people of the benefits of their hard work tends to discourage some to strive further to achieve more. By the way Chinko and imitation are like 5 & 6.

Chinese nationals wrecking havoc in our economy. If it were to be in their country, they would've been facing death penalty. I hope Nigerian authorities treat them accordingly.

And what are they going to do with it? I wish i can have just 10 of such books, Different authors. That "Creative Capitalism" especially looks interesting. If they are not going to do anything about the books they should bring them to me, I will make good used of them. Although some may be pirated i have still learnt a lot from books. I see very interesting books there.

This is a serious moral divide for me. In my opinion, if any piracy be allowed, it should be books. Reading is the gateway to human insight and sustainable development. I COMMEND the pirators, whatever their motives may be. W We are a poor Country, and if you have ever tried to buy an original book, You would know that it is out of reach for the common man.

The books should be sold by d government, the pirates arrested to prevent reoccurrance, 40% of sales goes victims of the piracy, 30% to the government and the remain 30% to the copyright board as appreciation for thier good works.

They've inflated the price of the books to make it look like they've done something significant, those books are not worth even one million. If they are serious about combatting piracy, they should go to alaba market

Intelectual property theft, discouraging Nigerians from being creative since it started.

This clearly shows we still read in this part of the world..

Now, government should try and subsidise the original versions of these books, to keep the reading trend growing

Will they listen to my advice, I don't think so
