Finally, the World intellectual Property Organisation Draft Treaty for Improved Access for the Blind, Visually Impaired and Other Reading Disabled Persons to Copyrighted Materials and its contribution to the idea of a human rights framework for intellectual property is investigated. The thesis finds the Draft Treaty a useful tool in realization of a better access for the visually impaired community, as well as in creation of a human rights framework for intellectual property rights as a hybrid solution to the aforementioned clash of these two areas of law.
