Marrakesh Treaty and the European Union

Last Thursday 20th March, IFLA and the Copyright 4 Creativity coalition (C4C) organized a breakfast debate in the EU Parliament to discuss the international and EU copyright frameworks.

We’d like to highlight an important announcement made at this forum by Ms Kerstin Jorna from the European Commission: the European Council approved (the day before, 19th March) the European Commission’s proposal to sign the Marrakesh Treaty ensuring access to accessible format works for the world’s visually impaired and print disabled.
