Slovenia in the proceeding for non-compliance
In October 2018, the European Union officially ratified the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled.
Even though the deadline for its implementation set in Directive 2017/1564 is October 12, 2018, the majority of the member states has not yet transposed the Treaty and the Directive into national legislation. The European Commission therefore decided to initiate the proceedings for non-compliance against 17 members states, amongst which is also Slovenia. The proposed amendment of the Copyright and Related Rights Act, that would bring the necessary changes to the Slovenian legislation, is still under discussion.
