Book piracy has been an issue trending in the Nigerian publishing space recently. This is because of the ripple effects of the action on both publishers and authors alike. This action has over the years been a bottle neck for publishers and authors in achieving their aim of reaching out to the public and making sales from their respective publications.

In the light of this, this study seeks to explain certain reasons why this action has not been effectively nipped in the bud as well as the pandemic effects of this situation.

Conclusively, the study would suggest some of the ways in which this challenge could be surmounted, thus further encouraging authors and publishers, and boosting their quest and desire to publish the more.
