Mongolia commits to Marrakesh

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has now released Marrakesh Notification No. 10: Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled. As its title suggests, it reflects the deposit by the Government of Mongolia last week of its instrument of ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty. Readers of this weblog can probably chant in their sleep the mantra that
The date of entry into force of the said Treaty will be notified when the required number of ratifications or accessions is reached in accordance with Article 18 of the said Treaty.
The day will come, however, when we will all be astonished to discover that the requisite number of countries has been reached [for a reminder of the coming-into-force details just click here].
