Exploring IP enforcement and e-commerce in Nigeria and South Africa: Africa IP SME Helpdesk webinar series

The Africa IP SME Helpdesk will host its second webinar in a three-part series dedicated to intellectual property (IP) enforcement. This event will focus on IP enforcement and e-commerce in two significant African economies: Nigeria and South Africa.

Why Nigeria and South Africa?

As Africa’s largest and most influential economies, Nigeria and South Africa have emerged as key players in the global digital economy. Both have witnessed a surge in e-commerce activities, making them fertile grounds for businesses seeking to harness the potential of the digital marketplace.

However, with this digital transformation comes the need for robust enforcement mechanisms to protect IP rights online. Counterfeiting, piracy and IP infringement have posed challenges in these countries, highlighting the importance of understanding IP enforcement, particularly in the context of e-commerce.
