To all applicants of registration of Copyright works,
The Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO) is established under Section 3 of the Copyright Act (Cap 130 of the Laws of Kenya).Among the core functions of the Board, is to maintain an effective data bank on authors and their works.
In this regard, KECOBO is in the processes of opening up its database of authors to members of the public. This will entail providing the database to the general public that is searchable from a web portal. To facilitate this exercise, we have re-organized the Registration Certificates naming format for all Musical works that were issued earlier than year 2015.
Therefore, this is to kindly request that all ORIGINAL CERTIFICATES be surrendered to the Board’s offices at NHIF Building, 5th Floor on or before 30th of April 2016 to facilitate this process.
NB: Please note that certificates would be re-issued FREE OF CHARGE.Read more
