CHRIS-VINCENT Writes: Nana Akufo Addo’s ‘Plagiarized Speech’. Social Media’s 70 Years Copyright BS Justification. The Success or Otherwise of Nana Akufo Addo Depends On His People

President Nana Akufo Addo

President Nana Akufo Addo

What is this 70 years copyright bullshit got to do with plagiarism?

Which copyright law are people quoting? And what has copyright really got to do with plagiarism?
Copyright Violation mainly is using the creative or invention of another without proper legal permission. So when we say you have violated someone’s copyright, it means you did not get permission to use someone’s works or writings.

Copyright generally allows for fair use; which is you can use a small portion of someone’s work without the need for permission. Yet it’s appropriate or required to source, credit or reference the person.

Plagiarisms is using someone’s works or words and failing to credit this person, making it seems they were yours. It does not matter if the words or works are still protected by copyright.

We credit words said to have been said by Buddha or many of these religious leaders all the time–because of plagiarisms and not copyright.

Plagiarism has nothing in most cases to do with copyright, though they sometimes meet.

That was by the way.

The truth is, Nana Akufo Addo to me has a good intention and holds on a great ambition to make Ghana better.

But as this plagiarism saga has confirmed; he can only do better if the people around him do the right things.

Nana Akufo Addo wouldn’t even know about most scandals until it’s too late. I am sure he didn’t even know about this “stolen quote.”

The success of a president heavily relies on the people he works with–they can make him or screw him up!

In practice, the president doesn’t really do much; be delegates and relies on his people to do his wishes or push through his well established vision.

Shame shame shame. So among all the intellectuals and writers in the NPP no one could write an original speech for such an important occasion? They have really made Ghana a laughing stock today. I am hoping this is not a sign of things to come as that would be a huge disappointment to some of us who have so much hope about this new government

Oh relax lol is just a mere mistake beside Clinton and bush plagiarized from this Woodrow Wilson. The law of copyright allows people to plagiarize other people’s work 70years after their dead. You should know the opposition will do anything to bring him down. Hahahah most important thing that is we pray he fulfills every promise he made during his campaign and not the plagiarized work.
