The entertainment industry's primary product is intellectual property, protected by copyrights, trademarks, and the right of publicity. In Nigeria, a number of laws have bearing on the protection and administration of the different rights that make up intellectual property. The three main statutes governing the intellectual property Law in Nigeria are the Copyright Act, the Patents and Designs Act, and the Trademarks Act. Terms and conditions in entertainment contracts concern the ownership and use of this property. The entertainment industry includes the fields of theater, film, fine art, dance, opera, music, literary publishing, television, and radio. These fields share a common mission of selling or otherwise profiting from creative works or services provided by writers, songwriters, musicians, and other artists.
