COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT! Court orders Clarence Peters to pay N5 million

Published

A federal high court sitting in Lagos has ordered music video director, Clarence Peters, to pay N5 million as damages for alleged copyright infringement.

The court ruled in favour of Uwana Victor and Akan Victor who filed the suit under Black Alliance.

“In the circumstances of this case, I have no doubt that the defendant (Peters) took advantage of the plaintiffs and infringed on their copyright,” justice Mojisola Olatoregun said in the ruling.

“Both general and special damages are compensatory damages. General damages are losses which flow naturally from the defendant’s conduct and its quantum need not be pleaded or proved as it is generally presumed by law.

“I believe that the plaintiffs’ claim for damages amount to general damages and in the circumstance, I believe general damages will adequately take care of the loses occasioned by the defendant’s conduct. The sum of N5m only is awarded against the defendant.”

Peters has reportedly filed in the court of appeal for the ruling to be overturned.

He added that after downloading the nude photographs of Salawa Abeni on his phone, he picked up her mobile number from her Instagram page.

“On 1st of April, 2020, I chatted her up and also called her after sending a few of the photos to her online. My intention was to negotiate with her for few bucks and for me to destroy the photographs.

“I thought everything was going on fine until the following day when I heard the news of the blackmail over the radio. I was with my mother. She was even cursing the blackmailer unknown to her that I was the brain behind it.

“I immediately sneaked out, destroyed the memory card and threw my mobile phone and SIM card into a nearby wetland in Magboro. Since then, I never mentioned it to anyone and called Madam Salawa Abeni about it again,” he disclosed.

Commenting on the arrest, CP Hakeem Odumosu stated that no individual would be allowed to commit a crime in Lagos from any state or escape to other states in Nigeria to evade arrest.
