Copyright high court trial 21 September 2021 – 1 September 2021

Blind SA reflects on the ways in which the lack of access to reading materials has infringed upon the constitutional rights of people who are blind or partially sighted to equality, dignity, basic and further education, freedom of expression and participation in the cultural life of one’s choice. These rights are interconnected and their realisation cannot be further delayed!

We are calling on Government to expedite legislative reform to South Africa’s apartheid era Copyright laws to make sure that we can all access reading materials in a format that we can access.

1978 Copyright Act is unconstitutional – it violates basic human rights of blind and partially sighted people
