Nigerian firm partners with Sony to combat piracy

The CEO of Yemi's Media Limited, Mr. Yemi Adeniyi announced over the weekend that his company is partnering with Sony to produce anti-piracy software to protect intellectual property.

"Apart from the fact that we are introducing different types of special discs which would make it difficult for people to duplicate or even source for the disc because we are the only one authorized to produce in Africa, it also comes with a hi-tech software configuration which is subject to upgrading to make the security unbreakable," he said.

Mr. Adeniyi also disclosed that that every single protected disc will have a different encryption code applied after authoring.

"New and different code is applied to every title and this high level of protection makes a generic crack impossible. Also this dynamic anti piracy solution packaged by us is exclusively in alliance with Sony technology that effectively deals with copying on personal computers, copying from DVD to DVD, DVD to hard drive and distribution on the internet."

"In line with this initiative development, we have written to the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), Minister of Information and Communication, Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), and other relevant organizations on the concept developed to effectively sanitize the entertainment industry from the menace of pirates."
