ETHICAL AND LEGAL ISSUES IN BOOK PUBLISHING IN NIGERIA

 

CHAPTER ONE

                                                 INTRODUCTION          

 

1.1 Background of the study

Book is seen as a catalyst for mental growth and social integration. Book is a medium of mass

communication which propels effective utilization of other media. It is also a fountain for national integration and development, the grand index of technology, government, politics, religion, economy , sociology, medicine, engineering to mention but a few [Awoniyi, 1979].The book as elucidated by Kalejaye and Akangbe (2007),described it  as a multi-faceted, dynamic product and a monumental asset of every society. They opine;

“ It is (the book) a veritable source of information to the teachers and students, a gold mine of knowledge for researchers and scholars and a fountain of pleasure and leisure to general readers. Books are indices of progress, pivots of stability, catalysts for social development as well as springboards of advancement and galvanisers to breakthrough.”

 

The impacts of book in literacy development is unquantifiable and this is why the degree of development in a nation can be strictly attached to its degree of literacy which book stimulates. So, a developed society is a book glued society, a developing society is a less book conscious society. Therefore, book publishing plays a significant role in the growth of a nation. Through book publishing, records as well as the academic information and theories of those education legends like Aristotle, Socrates, Decartes would not have been noted for posterity but lost to humanity. Moreover, publishing is an intellectual and social responsibility for keeping human activities for posterity. According to Nyeko (1991);

“It is the process of producing for dissemination; book, films, computer programmes, records, Newspapers, periodicals, discs, bulleting, magazines and other literacy materials”

Thus, publishing is a generic term used to describe the process of producing literacy and information materials for public utility [Carter and Pattis, 2001] . It becomes meaningfully focused whenever it is contextualized. Pathetically, publishing has come a long way in Nigeria, to be précised it commenced about 162 years ago when the pressybitarian floated the historic printing press in 1846 (Omu, 1978). Regrettably, the industry has been bedevilled by various challenges inspite of its grown in size and structure. Today, more than ever before as kalejaye and akangbe (2007) agrees that it has more formidable constraints to wrest with. Based on this premise, this paper examines and explores the avalanche of problems which undermine and cripple the prospects of the industry and the need to tackle those constraints headlong by finding  lasting solution to them as the writer aspires to do in thepaper’s  recommendations.

 

1.2 Statement of the problem

This research may have been conducted in the past.This work gives further explanations and analysis on the ethical and legal issues in book publishing in Nigeria

 

1.3 Sources of law

Sambe and Ikon (2004) avers that sources of law are manifold as there are definitions of law itself. It could mean the ultimate origin of the whole body of a legal system. In other words the origin from which the system derives its validity could be the electorate, a special body, the general will of the people or the will of a dictator. In this sense, a source of law is always formal. The term source of law may be used to mean the historical origin of the rule e.g. law of the common law is the historical origin of the English law, for the origin of many rules of English law may be traced back to the common law. Hence we also have historical source of law.

There is also a material or literary source which means a text containing the rules of the law e.g. statute, books, reports, textbooks etc. Sources of Law could also mean the foundation of authority of a rule of law. i.e. the origin from which a legal rule derives its authority. This is known as legal source. It is the means through which a rule forms part of the body of law, e.g. legislation and judiciary precedents. From the above background, the search for the source(s) of law may lead one to investigate from where law comes i.e. where and how the legal rules which today govern human conduct in the society originated. In this context, the main sources of Nigerian law are:

 

Primary or principal sources:

  1. English Law
  2. Nigerian Legislation

iii.      Nigerian case law/ judiciary precedent.

  1. Customary law

 

Secondary or subsidiary sources:

  1. Customs
  2. Opinions of texts – writers.

iii.      Law Reports

  1. Records of Statutes.
