The loan, according to Gabosky was meant to create the biggest and most reliable distribution network for intellectual properties in Africa , but pirates have crashed the dream and have left him bankrupt

“the first movie I was to market is “half of a yellow”, before I even finished printing the jackets pirates had already flooded the market with fake copies and were selling them for cheap money.

The second one was “30 Day In Atlanta”, produced by AY and again movie pirates took over and AY was crying over it. The third one was Kunle Afolayan’s “October 1”, I was in South Africa doing some negotiation the street were already flooded with pirated copies. Now these guys have made me helpless.

Go to Alaba international market, the traders behave as if they are an independent state in Nigeria and intellectual property laws do not work in the market. I am glad that the Police are coming to our rescue” he lamented.
