According to Pretty Okafor, the commence of the barcoding regime will commence as soon as the on-going negotiations and discussions between PMAN and The Federal Ministry of Information & Culture on one hand and the Nigeria Copyright Commission (N.C.C) on the other hand are concluded.
“We shall then announce the date for the commencement of the bar-code regime in Nigeria as the measure is designed (a.) to protect the works creator, (b.) the investors, and (c.) to be able to determine the contribution of the music industry into the annual G.D.P of the Nation since Nigerian music have been rated one of the best in the world today.” Okafor said.
