Re:Create Coalition Statement on Marrakesh Treaty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Re:Create Coalition today issued the following statement on the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled, which President Obama sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification. The treaty focuses on copyright exceptions to improve access to books, published material and other copyrighted works for those with disabilities.

“We applaud the Obama Administration and its leadership in ensuring copyrighted works are made available to people with disabilities, and we encourage the Senate to ratify this treaty. The U.S. has played a leadership role in the global community in promoting the limitations and exceptions to copyright that make disability access possible so all can benefit from the enjoyment of books and other creative works,” said Re:Create Executive Director Joshua Lamel.
