ARL Applauds House Approval of Marrakesh Treaty Implementation Act

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) expressed its approval of the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the Marrakesh Treaty Implementation Act. It had previously been ratified by the U.S. Senate, so now it goes to the president, who “must sign the act into law and the US State Department will need to deposit the instrument of ratification with the World Intellectual Property Organization. ARL urges the Administration to swiftly complete these next steps.”

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) administered the original treaty—the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired, or Otherwise Print Disabled—which has been ratified by various countries. The European Union is expected to complete the ratification process later in 2018.
