Singapore signs up for Marrakesh

Just released this morning, a World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) media release, "Marrakesh Notification No. 7 Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled", tells us that the Republic of Singapore has now deposited its instrument of accession to the Marrakesh Treaty -- which is still some way short of coming into force (that will happen three months after 20 countries have committed to it, under Article 18 of the Treaty).

The current list of nations committed to Marrakesh stands at a mere seven so far (you can check the list, which is updated whenever necessary, here).
