- States should guarantee, in law and practice, that persons with disabilities have access to knowledge and culture on an equal basis with others and have the freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas in the form of art. This obligation includes, but is not limited to:
a) Providing a limitation or exception to domestic copyright law for the blind, visually impaired and otherwise print disabled. The rights subject to such limitation or exception should include the right of reproduction, the right of distribution, and the right of making available to the public in order to facilitate the availability of works in accessible format copies for such beneficiaries. Authorized entities may, on a non-profit basis, produce accessible format copies, which can be distributed by non-commercial lending or by electronic communication; this should include having lawful access to the work, introducing only those changes needed to make the work accessible, and supplying the copies only for use by beneficiary persons. The blind, visually impaired and otherwise print disabled persons may also make a personal use copy where they have lawful access to an accessible format copy of a work;
b) Allowing the import and export of accessible format copies under the conditions set in the Marrakesh Treaty;
c) Ensuring that policies, funding and budgeting related to arts and culture are inclusive of accessibility features for persons with disabilities, and that that the universal design standards are adopted for the design of all libraries, cultural buildings, spaces, events, programmes, exhibitions, and related products and information;
d) Requiring from tenders for public procurement of services in the area of knowledge and culture that they demonstrate their experience and understanding of needs, accessibility and inclusion of persons with disabilities.
