With 20th Signature, Marrakesh Treaty Prepares for Enforcement

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) announced that Canada has ratified the Marrakesh Treaty for facilitating access to published works for blind, visually impaired, and print-disabled readers, bringing it one step closer to becoming globally enforced. The member states of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) signed the treaty in 2013, committing them to the creation of a copyright exception that would allow authorized entities such as libraries to reproduce works in formats that are accessible. These entities may also share works with other countries that have ratified the treaty. Now that Canada, the 20th country, has signed, the treaty enters into force in 3 months, on Sept. 30, 2016.

For more information, read the press release.
