Abstract

It has been over two years since the most seismic changes to UK copyright law since the Copyright, Designs, and Patents Act 1988. The Copyright (Visually Impaired Persons Act) 2002 introduced exceptions for making accessible copies for people with visual impairments; the 2014 updates widened this exception to all impairments that prevent access to a copyright work. What has happened since then? This talk will take you on a journey down the bumpy road of harmonising local and international laws, policies, and processes in order to provide disabled people with equitable access to copyright material.
