Privileged Communication: Does The Law Offer Sufficient Protection? | Zeniath Abiri

Privilege is a rule of evidence that allows the beneficiary of the privilege to refuse to disclose information or provide evidence about a certain subject or to bar such evidence from being disclosed or used in a judicial or other proceeding. This principle was judicially defined in B v. Auckland v. Society,[1] as a right to resist the compulsory disclosure of information. Privilege acts to protect a witness from answering questions in evidence, and/or entitles a party to refuse to produce documents for inspection, during the course of legal proceedings. This doctrine is thus, not just a rule of evidence, but is also a substantive legal right. It follows that it would amount to a breach of this fundamental legal right, for a court to draw any adverse inference, from the making of a valid claim to privilege.[2]

IP ABC: - Can I Copyright My Book Title | Infusion Lawyers

I'm a Nigerian author. Presently, I am writing my second book. The book is titled, Buhari: 100 Days in London and Other Stories. But there is a problem. I discovered 3 other writers who have written articles that are similar to the title of my book. In fact, when I contacted one of the writers about this, he emphatically told me that he was about to finish a book with a similar title. And just as I tried to think it through, a Nigerian movie also with almost identical title popped up in a TV advert. I badly want to use this title. For protection, can I copyright the title of my book?
