I’m IyanuOluwa Komolafe AKA Bosslady Cookist, a 400 level law student. I am a food blogger, content creator, student politician and an influencer.
My interest in Intellectual Property stemmed from a back and forth conversation I had with Olamilekan Adebanjo, I was always arguing with him that IP was unnecessary and Nigerians can’t afford compliance. One day I really thought about it and I saw what Lekan had been trying to explain to me, since then, I never looked back again.
IPTLC has been quite instrumental in grounding my knowledge of Intellectual property and I’m certain of know so much more as the time passes because the organization has put a plethora of information at our disposal.
In the culinary space, all the major forms of IP rights are evident. These IPRs are helpful as they can help you legally protect your recipes and your audience can also distinctively recognize your works.
Overtime in food space and content creation people use people’s ideas, repost cooking videos or recipes without giving credit to the owners. By being a member of IPTLC I know my right. I know when people have gone overboard with my content and I also know when to give credit to other people’s work when making use of their content all thanks to IPTLC.
