South Africa's draft copyright amendment bill to incorporate exception for the visually impaired

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

On 27 July 2015 the South African government published the Draft Copyright Amendment Bill for comments. What makes this Draft Copyright Bill such an achievement is that it includes copyright exceptions for the visually impaired, in the spirit of the Marrakesh Treaty. However, the dismal nature of the Draft Copyright Bill as a whole threatens to compromise this momentous achievement.
