The Road to Accessibility without Borders: Celebrating the One-Year Anniversary of the Marrakesh Treaty

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

One year ago, on June 28, 2013, at a diplomatic conference in Marrakesh, Morocco, the World Intellectual Property Organization ( WIPO ) agreed on a historic international copyright exception for people with print disabilities. I have previously written about the top issues addressed by the Treaty , but to recap, the Treaty is a wonderful instrument because it requires exceptions for people who are blind or have other print disabilities in national copyright laws.

Not sure whether to celebrate or mourn this milestone. I had a joint meeting (both Republicans and Democrats) with the key Senate Judiciary Committee staff who are the copyright experts, and learned a lot about the process. She convened a group of noteworthy law professors who are experts on international law, including human rights and copyright law.

LACMA's Magritte Exhibition: This is not fair use

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

The "Magritte and Contemporary Art: The Treachery of Images" exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art manages to both celebrate and betray fair use at the same time. Boing Boing asks: This is a riddle: does the Magritte exhibition celebrate fair use, or deny it? And so I find it intensely frustrating that a lot of copyfighters insist on blaming the museum for copyright on artwork. Boing Boing has a post about the LACMA's Magritte Exhibition.
