Copyright infringement in Zambia versus sustainable development
MetadataShow full item record
The main objective of this Directed Research Essay is to illustrate the relationship that exists between effective copyright protection and sustainable development. To achieve this, the essay looks at selected provisions of the Copyright and Performance Rights Act, chapter 406 of the Laws of Zambia that bring out an understanding of copyright generally. The paper will then link development with copyright, drawing examples from other countries which have appreciated this link and have used copyright as an effective tool for economic development. Suffice to note also that the essay places much emphasis on the fact that if copyright infringement is to be combated, law enforcement officers, the owners of the various copyrightable works and indeed the public at large much have knowledge about copyright as it is an undisputed fact that 'knowledge is power'.
