Christian booksellers cry out over piracy

Federal Government was, yesterday, urged to enforce the law on piracy in the country to enable authors and book publishers benefit from their labours.

President of the Christian Booksellers  Association Nigeria, CBAN, Mrs Modupe Ehirim, made the call in Lagos at the opening of the 2012 convention and book fair.

She said the book publishing industry was confronted with the activities of the pirates on a scale much larger than anything the country had ever experienced.

Mrs Ehirim said the challenging operational environment has made many a book-sellers to rethink their call to the Christian book trade, adding that the association had embarked on enlightenment and advocacy on the dangers of piracy.

The CBAN President also called for the creation of a conducive environment to encourage reading culture in the country, stressing that libraries and the reading of books would not only improve literacy, enhance careers, raise pleasant children but also ensure marriage success.
