ABSTRACT

The above research was carried out on a cross-section of the East Africa region but emphasis on

Uganda with an intention of examining the prevalence, causes, effect and factors impeding the

effective protection of Copyrights.

The research attempts to trace the genesis of copyright and its progress to date, showing the

shifts of circumstances that have occured overtime making Copyright more multifaceted and

mystifying to the layman.

The research discusses, the sources of copyrights, giving them as the central cause of effective

protection in East Africa.

The research gives a critical analysis to the Copyright laws in Uganda. The Copyrights Act 2006,

The 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, The Access to Information Act of 2005,

2opyright and Neighbouring Rights Regulations of 2010.

The research will scrutinized the noble principle of client-advocate privilege in relation to

2opyright law, given the allegation that this privilege hinders the effective protection of

;opyright. This having been argued as the most contentious element of the law on copyright in

nany jurisdictions, it is likely to prove its controversial nature, thus triggering further research

m the same.

)uring the research process, different methods of data collection were are applied which

ncluded; questionnaires whereby information was gotten through structured questions

;ontaining both open and closed ended questions, interviews with professionals, observations

Nhich included fact finding missions whereby the researcher would observe the factors in the

1ctual sense by intenacting with the respondents, library research which involved comparisons if literature that was previously researched on a relevant field both in local and internationaleve!.

3asing on the research findings, it can be concluded that the effective protection of copyright in

uganda calls for impementation of the laws present and enactment of others which are not yet effective. Preventive measures need to be taken especially to counter the sources of piracy that

form the subject of protection of Copyright
