Copyright protection is a mechanism to secure the rights of ownership of original work so that no one can use the rights-protected work in any way without seeking permission for the use. It became imperative that user may pay the right owners a royalty for utilizing such resource. Copyright Society of Nigeria(COSON) is the regulatory body over intellectual properties but it lacks provision for encrypting digital content like videos, images and graphics. Hence, rampart illicit reproduction of developed graphics, movies, images and music by internet mafias and thereby deprive legitimate owners their due proceeds. This anomaly led to development of copyright protection suite to competently secure copyrighted infrastructures and create a viable interface between COSON and content owners. All original digital contents are encrypted, interested user are made to pay royalty before access is allowed. Structured system analysis and design approach is deployed in developing the system – which provides clear cut steps in navigating process-to-process. The implementation used server side scripting language with its associated embedded resources and Standard Query Language(MySQL)to achieve the desired input-output robustness and buoyant security fittings.
