Republic of Korea signs up for Marrakesh Treaty

Today sees the release by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) of Marrakesh Notification No. 11, Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled: Ratification by the Republic of Korea.

The Republic of Korea (a.k.a. South Korea) deposited its instrument of ratification on 8 October, but the number of countries that have committed themselves to this Treaty so far is so small that we are still a long way from seeing it come into force.
