Barrier-free policies extended to copyright

China is extending the concept of a barrier-free environment beyond simply provisions for physical needs.

China has just marked the first anniversary of the implementation of the Marrakesh Treaty on May 5 — the first and only human rights treaty in the field of copyright around the world — after it took effect in the nation last year.

Li Chen, a professor from the Law School of Renmin University of China, said at a forum on constructing a barrier-free environment on Thursday in Beijing that the implementation of the treaty has extended people's understanding of the barrier-free environment from only physical needs to allowing copyright exceptions for visually impaired people so they can access copyrighted books and other works.
