Following Omoni Oboli injunction that was served to her which as therefore resulted to halt of “Okafor’s Law” release as a result of copyright infringement, Kemi Adebita has reached out to the general public to stop sending her scripts or ideas without legal protections.
While Kemi Adetiba understands the drive to break out, she advises scriptwriters to never send out a finished script without legal protection.
According to her, the act exposes both the sender and the recipient.
“I thoroughly understand the drive and hunger to break out, but you really shouldn’t send out finished scripts or film ideas without some written legal protection anyway. I appreciate it, but I delete as soon as I see the words “…this great idea/script.” I have a first degree in law.. I ain’t playing with y’all” – she wrote.
The injunction came six months after a Canada based filmmaker, Jude Idada, accused Oboli
According to Jude, Oboli had solicited his help in writing the script. Along the line, she called off the deal but went ahead to use his story and idea, changing just a few things.
Unfortunately, no contract was signed. Omoni however didn’t respond to the allegations until she addressed her guests at what was supposed to be the premiere of “Okafor’s Law.”
