March 28, 2017 – Omoni Oboli’s Copyright Infringement Court Case Hearing Holds Tomorrow
On Wednesday March 29, 2017, a Federal High Court Lagos will hear a copyright infringement suit slammed on popular Nollywood actress, Omoni Oboli, over the production of a film, “Okafor’s Law’’.
A company — Raconteur Productions Ltd — had on March 24 filed an ex parte application on behalf of a Canada-based script writer, Mr Jude Idada, seeking an order to halt the premiere of the film scheduled for March 31.
Joined as first to third defendants in the suit are Dioni Visions Entertainment, Omoni Oboli, and The Fillmore Ltd.
The suit filed by Chief Anthony Idigbe (SAN) is seeking an order, stopping the premiere and release of the film — “Okafor’s Law” — pending the determination of the suit.
The plaintiff also asked for an Anton Piller order (order to enter and seize) to enter into the premises of the defendant to seize all copies of infringing materials, pending the determination of the suit.
