Marrakesh Treaty: Mexico makes it nine

The United Mexican States has become the ninth country to commit itself to the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled, according to a media release from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

The Treaty will roar into life three months after 20 countries have ratified or acceded to it, under Article 18 of the Treaty. Curiously, of the first nine, five are from Latin America.

The current list of sign-ups for Marrakesh can be accessed here.
