World Book and Copyright Day in
Days to go:
World Book and Copyright Day is a global event dedicated to celebrating the importance of books as a bridge that connects people across cultures and generations. Recognized by UNESCO, the observance promotes not only the joy of reading but also the respect for authors and the value of their intellectual property rights. By appreciating both book creators and their creations, World Book and Copyright Day emphasizes the role of literature in cultural development and the rights of authors to be fairly compensated for their creative works.
Dating back to 1995, World Book and Copyright Day gained its inspiration from the Catalan tradition of gifting books and roses on the death anniversary of the renowned authors, William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes. This observance holds significance for people in Nigeria, a nation rich in literature and folklore. It introduces opportunities for Nigerian authors to gain global recognition, encourages reading amongst the younger generation, and upholds copyright laws that protect the intellectual property of Nigerian creators. Thus, stimulating both literary and economic growth in the country.
In Nigeria, World Book and Copyright Day is typically marked by various activities that raise awareness about the joy of reading and author rights. Libraries, schools, and cultural organizations often conduct book fairs, storytelling sessions, writing workshops, and copyright seminars. The Nigerian Copyright Commission also undertakes efforts on this day to address copyright infringements, thereby promoting a lawful and respectful environment for authors to thrive. This observance takes place annually on April 23rd, echoing the global schedule, aligning with the universal effort to foster a deeper appreciation of books and the creative minds behind them.
