Nicaragua ratifies the Marrakesh Treaty

Nicaragua has just ratified in January the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled.

This Treaty requires Contracting Parties to introduce a standard set of limitations and exceptions to copyright rules in order to permit reproduction, distribution and making available of published works in formats designed to be accessible to VIPs, and to permit exchange of these works across borders by organizations that serve those beneficiaries.

The Treaty will enter into force in Nicaragua on April 16, 2020. Nicaragua becomes with this ratification the 63rd country member to the Marrakesh Treaty.
