The magnificent new COSON House in Lagos will on Thursday August 10, 2017 play host to the banking sector stakeholder’s forum, as top management executives from leading banks across the federation will gather for intensive deliberations with Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) on copyright issues in the new knowledge economy.
The meeting which is a continuation of the COSON strategic agenda towards ensuring that Corporate Nigeria is in tune with global trends as they relate to the importance of the respect of intellectual property rights in the new global knowledge economy and the consequences of the infringement of those rights.
Speaking on the upcoming forum, COSON General Manager and Intellectual Property expert, Mr. Chinedu Chukwuji said, ‘At COSON, we are conscious of the role we must play in reshaping the Nigerian economy and ensuring that Nigeria is no longer held hostage by the vagaries of the price and demand for one commodity, oil. It is clear that our nation has significant creative endowments and we are happy with the recent attention being paid to deploying Nigeria’s creative industry towards the socio-economic development of the country. It is our desire at COSON to work with every sector of the society and I am confident that after our meeting with the banks, the environment for closer co-operation to achieve our objectives would be greatly improved”
