Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



The study examines copyright law as an influence on the use of information resources in Nigeria. A questionnaire was administered to authors, publishers, librarians and other allied users. Data were analysed with descriptive statistics. Information resources are available, accessible, and are in frequent use. Authors/creators are protected by copyright law which ensures benefits or royalties. The study reveals the need for cooperation between the Nigerian Copyright Commission and law enforcement agencies to enforce copyright law
