Copyright, Collective Management Organisations And Competition In Africa discusses the operation of collective management organisations (CMOs) and their regulation from the perspectives of copyright and competition law in Africa. It addresses contemporary issues relating to collective management of copyright from an African perspective. It also reflects on, and projects, the experiences of key national jurisdictions, upon which regional policymakers can rely to formulate guidelines or a regulation regime for CMOs in Africa. Importantly, the book unpacks the complexities around the nexus between copyright, CMOs and competition in Africa and presents the issues in very simple and easily comprehensible structure and language.
Copyright and competition law regulators and enforcers, academics, researchers and students, judges, and those saddled with formulating law and policy on collective management of copyright in Africa will find the book as an indispensable resource and reference material.
